Thinking about the coffee shops of Vienna in the 18th century – a period known for it’s great intellectual production because great minds would meet chat around their coffee addiction, I suddenly had a realisation:
Maybe Github is the place and moment where humanity has, up to this point, been the most productive, inventive and efficient ever!
Collaboration on the internet is not new, but the open source movement, coupled with good will and the right tools for productivity (git, bug trackers, forums, etc.) is truly pushing us forward at break-neck speed!
Hopefully Microsoft won’t destroy it all (as they tend to do) with their recent acquisition of Github. But if they do, maybe something better will come in it’s place…
/End of the shower thought – time to dry myself off and get ready for the day!
