I was just reading a great interview with our local Ubuntu community’s ‘buzz’ generator, Randall Ross and The Agora National (I will post it later), and it got me thinking about making mistakes. We’ve all grown up in a world where mistakes are a big deal. In the world we live in now, you can make a mistake and end up on the street quite easily. In the world of Ubuntu, on the other hand, mistakes are opportunities, nothing to hide under a carpet, or get spanked for. What a mind-shift, imagine growing up in an environment like that!
