In part two, we go into more depth about TSM's mission and discuss the sustainability (or otherwise) of Drupal's volunteer-based development model and the various efforts and experiments underway to change, improve, or "fix" it, some more pragmatic – like TSM and drupalfund.us, some more idealistic, like Gittip sponsorships and similar.

I ran into PHP consultant, Lorna Jane Mitchell at DrupalCon/Symfony Live Portland this May. She and I had a great talk about PHP for building secure, modular, high availability applications in the enterprise; where newer versions of PHP (5.3, 5.4, 5.5 ...) are headed; and the business value inherent in open source software. This conversation was the seed for Lorna's Acquia.com guest blog post, "The Future of PHP is ... Here Already", which compliments this podcast perfectly!
