8 It's a niggling thing and nothing major as such. But ideas flow from
9 concepts. And the idea that developers are in herds is not a solid
10 concept from which to begin.
12 While the Ciaran episode has come to an end, the circumstances that led
13 to that episode have not changed: mutual respect for fellow developers.
14 That is the idea. The concept should lay that down: a developer is not
15 a mindless follower, but a human being and a talented developer worthy
16 of respect.
18 This is a very small issue in the scheme of things, and a small hole to
19 fill. I'd rather fill it in now :)
21 Because it's supposed to be fun, too.
23 Thanks,
