One thing I hope that never happens at Access (and hope it hasn’t already happened and I’m too much of a super arrogant programmer to notice) is the “hotshot developers” gather round a table and whip out their laptops and break only to give supra-obtuse presentations on how to use their technologies (and opening by saying they aren’t going to explain anything to those that might not know the specifics of their particular technologies).

If Sakai really wants to become a ‘community driven software’, they really need to address this impenetrable geeky cult of personality.

Code4lib, of course, is already completely populated by super arrogant programmer types, so I’m not as worried about it.
