Technical Elitism...

Jordan Bortz posted a great rant about technical elitism and questions why tech folks are so quick to make judgmental calls based on a technology. Geeks believe they are in a superior position just because they know or use something that someone else doesn't. How many times have you observed the MS vs xNIX debate?

My nugget: "Somehow we have driven ourselves towards the concept of better, and not focused on the concept of appropriate. Unfortunately, “better” is in the eyes of the speaker whereas “appropriate” is defined by the view of the surrounding group."
