What does an 'adult' look like in an open source community? | Opensource(dot)com
We all have the facile answer, but the more interesting question when you're at the summit is, "What is an adult in the context of a community?" Red Hat founder Bob Young once said that a community is nothing more than a group of people with something in common, and he's right. There's nothing special about the community aspect of an open source project. We are a social species.

How Apple Makes the Watch [on the metallurgy of the case] | Atomic Delights
> Formed, machined, laser deburred, polished and bead blasted, the Sport Watches are placed in custom racks for the anodizing process. If you will recall from earlier, some industrial processes are counterintuitive insofar as they take an undesirable issue with a material and flip it into a positive. Anodizing is another one of these processes. Just as steel parts can react with air to oxidize (creating rust), aluminum also oxidizes to form an uneven, chalky white film. The anodizing process uses electricity and chemistry to create a thick, precise layer of this aluminum oxide on the surface of the part.
>
> While rust on steel is a terrible and corrosive thing, oxidized aluminum actually brings tremendous benefits to the table as it is essentially a very hard ceramic. A controlled, even layer of this oxide actually makes a finished aluminum part very durable and resistant to scratches. Furthermore, that layer builds up in a convenient honeycomb structure that (for a short period of time) can be coaxed into holding colored dyes in nearly any shade imaginable.  
>
> Again, Apple is likely anodizing more metal than any other organization on the planet, and we get a glimpse of a highly optimized set of racks with Sport cases in it. Most anodizing racks are general purpose affairs with clips or hooks that both hold the part and make the positive electrical contact. Apple is using custom formed and plastic dipped racks that very (very) densely hold parts. It's yet another detail that anyone in manufacturing is likely to look at and think "Wow, I wish we had the volume/budget to pull that trick off."
