A month back, I talked to a friend I shall call Joel since his name is really Joel anyway. We had a short geek talk and he asked me if I have any knowledge on open-source projects.

“I only know how to use them, I don’t code for them,” I answered.

He continues, “but do you know of any open source project that is worth my time?”

“Well, it sort of depends on what you like…”

He interrupts, “It doesn’t matter, I want to join a project that is popular.”

“Huh?”

And he elaborates to me, “If you want to join an open source project, should join one that is popular then can gain recognition.”

That was a sad moment for me. I shrugged and suggested “erm, maybe can try Firefox.”

On a side note, Uzyn is excited that CakePHP 1.2 Release Candidate 1 is out. I’ve been longing to consume the release candidate. Great work CakePHP team! I love your work.
