I've been really enjoying @nayafia's Working in Public because it thoughtfully explores the complicated incentives and implicit tradeoffs in open source communities and then an example reached out and goosed me.


One time I helped a group of devs at a trade school solve a design issue and one said to the other, "See, that's why I wanted to invite Peter, because he's been programming longer than you've been alive." These surprise milestones knock me on my ass.
