Blender Foundation this year aired a 98min collection of short video messages from the community instead of a typical online conference, and it's diverse, intimate, inspiring and impressive.
I think for everyone in free software this is a fantastic insight to observe, listen and think long and hard about how and why blender succeeds in all these communities and fields, and what we can learn from it. And instead of looking for the zeitgeist-y "disruptive" strategic aspects, I think it's important to consider that they've been at it for ~20 years, however in contrast to many other similarly aged but more or less stagnant projects they've managed to make time really work for them.
So then, let's watch and learn. Kudos to them! - https://youtu.be/uEjmbsiflMU
