Gentoo: Critical Mass
Well, for the past several days I've been pretty pumped about the future of Gentoo. There seems to be a great interest among the larger Gentoo community (beyond the "official" project) for a more open, flatter, more distributed development model that will allow for good, capable leadership, rapid innovation and result in delivering great stuff to users. And all this can be accomplished without forcing anything upon the main Gentoo organization.
The truth is that Gentoo needs more than just a leader. It needs leaders - plural, that's important. We need to empower the smart, capable people in our community, of which there are many, to self-organize, collaborate and work towards common goals.
