I was reminded of this yesterday. Seems like a good thing to revisit occasionally.
@cstanhope The "discussion" on The Orange Site provides a fascinating insight into the people there.
It's disturbing, and oddly compelling, rather like a car crash.
There are some people there that I not only never want to work with, but who I never want to meet.
@ColinTheMathmo Sometimes it's good to flush those people out. Make 'em show themselves so you can take notes. 😆
@ColinTheMathmo As long as you "wonder if I am similarly afflicted with an excessive confidence in my abilities" you are likely always going to be open to others opinions and open to collaboration and open to growth and self-improvement and open to new ideas and approaches and open to empathy for others (and hopefully not too hard on yourself). That's the sort of qualities I find valuable and attractive in people I work with. :)
A Fediverse instance for people interested in cooperative and collective projects.
