Guess what open source personnage is being talked about about here:
Perhaps that will be a lesson to the self-styled "Hacker of social systems" that there is a reason he has two ears and only one mouth.
As a low-level hacker he needed to elicit support from others to get his work recognised and included. He was unwilling to listen to advice and criticism from those who know a lot better than him, and his work was not of such obvious brilliance that people were prepared to accept it without change.
He was not prepared to make the changes folks wanted, so he took his ball and went away in a strop.
