Consumer-Developers and Contributor-Developers | Enfranchised Mind
Concept: some open source is polished, and is intended for people to just USE it. Some is just code someone wrote and is willing to let others see and/or build on. Watch out: if you confuse the two types you'll just generate acrimony.

Why Your Programming Language Is “Too Academic” | Enfranchised Mind
An REALLY GOOD explanation for why C++ and Java worked, but most good academic languages never make it out of the ivory tower. Providing a path for "gradual adoption" is the key.
