Sometimes I imagine a future where I can only work on Akira and other Linux apps, reviewing contributions from other developers, and buildings a sustainable business around Open Source Software.
I'm not sure I'll ever be able to achieve that, or if my dreams will remain such.
I'm excited about the challenge, but I'm scared shitless.
