Quote o' the day: Coda Hale on the value of communities
...but at some point a best practice emerged: ignore the community entirely.
Actually, there are some lessons there: Language communities are nice and fun and wonderful, but they may not be good ways of learning "best practices", whatever those are. It sucks to be an early adopter. (On the other hand, not having any early adopters isn't good either.) Oh, and if anyone asks you if they look fat, don't answer them.
