@hankg egg humility
I totally agree on this.
But these "compassionate" values are just ways to keep programmers focused on producing value for the (leaders of the) projects they contribute.
See how #IntellectualHonesty is NOT listed? It's still an expression of humility, but it fosters deep dialogues, political reflections and so on...
All they want is your code.
@Shamar @BadMinotaur I don't see anything remotely close to "focus on product value" in these. I read these on how to be a better team member and interact well with others in a group environment. Applicable to development and open source obviously. Could apply to commercial too I suppose, but think about these with a weekend sports league and it still applies, etc.
I didn't say "Fuck HUMILITY, EGO rulez!". Who could sustain such an argument?
Such infographic has low value because it doesn't challenge people: just like an ode to motherhood, everybody will agree (count your boosts) without even thinking about what is missing there.
If I raise concern about how a project I contributed to could be used, is it EGO?
Should I just stay "humble", shut down and work for free?
#Humility is a core value for me.
But it's a NSFW humility.
@Shamar @BadMinotaur I don't think bringing up concerns is automatically an ego move. It can be but isn't automatically.
I think this can have high value and can in fact challenge people. It's like a mantra. When you are about to act in a certain way when something happens you can look at it and say "is this aligning with this"
