The Open-Source Renaissance with Peer Richelsen

The Open-Source Renaissance with Peer Richelsen

It's a new season of the Deep End and we're moving to two episodes per week (Mondays + Wednesdays)!

We lay the groundwork for all of our upcoming episodes by discussing the nature of the open-source web. Our guest, Cal.com Co-CEO Peer Richelsen, views the internet as a democratic, transparent, and open technology that is undergoing a renaissance. Open-source software development was the spiritual precursor to 2021's web 3 boom. Tinkerers like Peer are ecstatic that technologists are returning to the very fundamentals of the web that made it so inclusive and exciting in the early 2000s. In this episode, Peer explains how the Internet can finally return to its decentralized roots because of incentive structures that have developed over the last few years. We also dive into several fun other topics, including how to pick the right web domain, how to build a company with two CEOs, and what the differences in cultures of compensation transparency are between the US and Germany.
