Useful, Entertaining, Informative,
I could go on and on... In general I have found Mr Raymond insightful and brilliant.
For instance "How To Ask Questions The Smart Way" This should be in the curriculum of everyone entering High School, I wish I had found it in 8th Grade.
Our entire species would benefit following Eric S Raymond's suggestions. His main sight gives reference to myriad resources, not by any means an easy read but, if you "Get It" well worth the investment of your time.
I've come to trust and follow his methods to my benefit, My only wish is that I live long enough to meet him, However I' sure he couldn’t stand me.
Still, I'd like to thank him for his personal effort and dedication to raise the horizons and encourage those with the tenacity and perseverance to pursue the answers on their own.
