Open Source: Interacting with Contributors

I recently came across Michael Meeks’ most excellent and brief presentation on interacting with developers. It embodies a philosophy of mine when working in open source, to kill people with kindness. However, his analogy of relating code contributions to pictures drawn by children works well in my opinion…

The slide above reminds me of Maddox’s classic rant on kid artwork.

Thanks for the great analogy Michael, I completely agree with you!
