Well I’m old-school Internet; before the public floodgates were opened; and the Queen of the Computer – Admiral Dr. Grace Hopper, inventor of COBOL, wrote the first computer compiler (back when her bosses all said, ‘computers are for math not English!”) was constantly on the fight against programmers who always tried to keep code to themselves; and being in the powerful positions she managed to put herself into, she mandated code sharing; and it was a rare sharing of information between militaries and universities they enjoyed for a good 40+ years, thanks to her. Would I join it? Naw. I’d make my own religion first. But in general, yeah I agree with the idea. :)
