  • "just enough organization and no more". - josh dorkbotsea We distilled this into a general sense of what kind of management philosophy dorkbot has:
  • Surprise announcements Unfriendly to press Don't take responsibility for anything if at all possible Nobody gets any credit People forget it's organised Strong internal 'guidance' and continuity
  • Dorkbot dorking - pun based decision-making (any suggestions)
  • When The Shit Hits The Fan, Dorkbot will prevail

    15. 17. Dorkbot Overlord Philosophy “One of my favorite ideas that we talked about early on was having no floor and no ceiling that dorkbot would be a place for both beginners, students and famous/notorious/grumpy old farts to share what they're doing. So it's not about being a star or dorkbot as your chance to make it big, it's just about sharing what you're interested in with as little pressure to 'succeed' as possible.” Douglas Repetto
