Every time I see the Hacker Ethic praised without critically challenging its shortcomings, I have to think of "Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic" by Allison Parrish and wish it was more popular. You can read the transcript here

@lislis you should tell @aparrish that; I'm sure she would appreciate it.

(and I agree)

@technomancy hahaha, I didn't realize! @aparrish Thank you very much for this excellent talk and the resulting transcript!

@lislis @technomancy @aparrish the talk is amazing, even though I've only read the transcript so far.
It explicitly says things I only vaguely thought about.

Thanks for posting this! And thanks @aparrish this was a great Friday breakfast read, grateful for you opening it up to look at.
