  2. @strypey Oh, I wasn't saying Dries should have final say - quite the opposite. He's the executive, the community is the legislature, the judiciary should be someone else. Free software projects lack the impartial "someone else". # already has the robes…

  5. "They want the #'s 'Respect Your Freedoms' certification...that's how open source it is!" Whatever drug # is taking to maintain his composure after nearly 20 years of open-sourcery sabotage, I want some.

  12. I think # is brilliant, funny, and oddly charismatic, but # is not his format. TED is 10-20 mins per 1 idea. Have more than 1 idea? Come back next year.
