Here's the summary! Back in January, Chris Messina said that 2016 would be the year of ‘conversational commerce.’ Almost a year later, it looks like he might have been right. Chris, who invented the hashtag and the concept of coworking spaces, now works for Uber as a Developer Experience Lead. In this episode, Chris explains that the best thing you can do is to give your work away for free, why conversational interfaces will become commonplace by 2020, and how having an open source philosophy can make the internet a more diverse place.

@chrismessina Love-love-love that you phrase your last sentence the way you do. "...having an open source philosophy can make the internet a more diverse place." (Awesome and progressive is implied, correct?)😎
