It’s not often that I’m reading through some article online and come across someone using my own words in print (as it were), but that happened this morning!
It is a very strange feeling. I was reading Free, Open and Eating its Young – the premise of the article is that many free software communities have significant proportions of essentially anti-social contributors. Both Pat and I have blogged about this before – something that is important to me is that the climate of the Bongo community be extremely welcoming.
The quote of mine that was used is part of a longer, better phrased, comment I left on Jono Bacon’s blog. It’s pretty representative of my views, though – I don’t feel particularly misquoted, which is good.
