My “top 10″ 2007 blogging moments: #6

This could simply be about why I love the internet. And again (shocker) it is about the community.

More specifically, it is about the encouragement.

Sometime is it positive: like when David H. encouraged me to finish this top ten list in time.

Sometimes is it, more on the constructive side: like when David H. justly outed me as the only speaker to have not given him a title and abstract for my FSOSS talk. :)

But generally, when you start writing and putting yourself out there others chip in. Sometimes it’s to provide encouragement, and sometimes to provide a more critical assessment of your thinking or writing. Either way, my ideas, my thinking and my work has all been strengthened by both the brilliant and inane thoughts that have come to me via comments and emails on this blog.
