Hey programmers, we need to talk. | Sealed Abstract
You see, you collect some form of Imaginary Internet Points. Probably many forms. You might be collecting karma on Reddit or HN, or you might have a blog with an analytics counter (If you are reading this article, I have earned 1 Internet Point.) But the higher you go up the chain of effort, the less Imaginary Internet Points you get. In fact, as far as I can tell, there is actually no widely familiar (to programmers) way to get Internet Points for writing the Boyer-Moore patches. You know, actual programming. I asked a lot of people if there was such a thing as “patch karma”. There probably is, but none of my friends have heard about it.

The Most Common Leadership Model - And Why It's Broken - Forbes
"When organizations’ hire, develop, and promote leaders using a competency-based model, they’re unwittingly incubating failure. Nothing fractures corporate culture faster, and eviscerates talent development efforts more rapidly, than rewarding the wrong people for the wrong reasons. Don’t reward technical competency – reward aggregate contribution."
