More personal experiences in different contexts?  Keep thinking about
the debate, for sure.  Something personal I've noticed recently is that
I've become more focused on freedom issues generally - i.e. beyond
computing, even though I'm a hypocrite since I use restricted formats.

But it's different experiences openly stated and willingly accepted for
peer review where I think we can learn a lot, as well as some science,
to add to the enthusiastic views of a small number of people.  My
earlier post, for example, was just applying knowledge to Linux that's
been around elsewhere for decades.

One of the strengths of this list, unlike a lot of forums, is that
contradictory views are almost always welcomed and seen as a
contribution rather than a slight.  That means that the debates are
often of a higher quality because people don't default to ego wars,
territoriality is at a minimum, and it seems that people at least try to
find answers that contribute something constructive.

I think that the more we all hear from new people from different
backgrounds, the bigger the stock of knowledge and interpretations we'll
have available to consult.

So, yes, I think there's plenty to mull over.  But we need to hear from
new people, too!

BTW: Welcome!  Just don't try to get me into trouble :o
