It's awesome the way people collaborate and share their views and ideas in Open source. Every one from totally different backgrounds with only Drupal as their commonality are discussing at Drupal redesign iteration 9: http://groups.drupal.org/node/17106
The best part of the discussion is everyone out there actually gets to read and evaluate others perspective without prejudice! To have such discussions in a real time environment with people face to face, having each one to listen to the other would be such a challenge. It's so beautiful to just watch this happen, let alone be a part of it. I just love the way we can collaborate online, I love Open source :)!
