Gray Matter Matters

Aug 27 2009

I asked a question on probably one of the higher traffic forums, and it was answered within an hour. It still took 3 people to put together the answer because one line of code couldn’t work without the other. I had to have about the same level of technical knowledge to make use of the information and ask the question. What made this answer question style different was that the question was answered immediately unlike some other forums I’ve used. You can see it for yourself here:
Python FTP Most Recent File – Stack Overflow

Coincidence? It was on this website that I first heard of dive into python, the online book I used to learn the language. Except I learned dive into python 3 and asked the question from Google. A lot can be said about the use of the democratic process where knowledge matters.
