Do you obsess when writing emails to "business people" or feel awkward and not know how to converse with "finance people"? Dread networking events? Understanding the biases that our audience have and being empathetic to their goals will smooth any interaction. Open source projects present unique business challenges since so many of our staffing resources are volunteer. Easy interactions and good business happen when common interests are highlighted and shared goals are defined. Let's cut through posturing and adversarial language and practice hacking people to align interests and improve everyone's comfort in business situations. The fantastic side effect of this is that your project and business become more inclusive and stronger through diversity of background, skills and perspectives.
