@band Would you rather have things controlled by systems only few can understand?A more diverse community is better able to incorporate productive new members.A community's ability to embrace newcomers largely determines its long-term survival.One's ability to work well with others is much more important than one's technical knowledge.Undergraduate-level technical knowledge is at the core of world-changing systems.Significant technologies are created, maintained and deployed by teams, not individuals.Most of the issues in technology are social, not technical. https://t.co/s4aFa5z8y0
