I have written a short essay on software sustainability, and I'd love feedback from this community: https://science-in-the-digital-era.khinsen.net/#The%20sustainability%20doughnut%20of%20scientific%20software It's written in the specific context of computational science, but it readily translates to other application domains.

I found this really interesting and useful, thanks! As an aside, I noticed the 'archive copy' link didn't work, and also wondered if you'd considered archiving via zenodo instead.
I especially enjoyed the idea that having too many users is against your collective interests, as that would starve other projects of them, and the ecosystem would stagnate. It reminded me of 'little mesters' in Sheffield, lots of specialist, tiny factories that rely on each other to survive.

Thanks for the feedback @Alex McLean! I looked up the story of the "little mesters", interesting! The archive links are a bit special: they don't work immediately, you have to wait a bit: https://science-in-the-digital-era.khinsen.net/#Links%20to%20the%20future By now, the link works fine!
