Exactly my thought as of a week ago. Structured like Stack-Overflow, but for running instances of these routines and comparing results with others in a scientific manner.
Then it dawned on me: NO
...i'm sure someone else will do it eventually, especially given the popularity of open-source. But then I realized, I happen to agree with Bill Gates a little more: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._Hobbyists.jpg
I believe people in the tech-market need to stop giving away their sh*t for free, it can make not only your own, but others' efforts amount to $0
and yes: while $$$ isn't the only reason we code, it's a nice incentive.
Overall: I think we need to stop being stupid, to stop throwing our money away. To stop devaluing our technical SKILLS
That very idea right there: while being highly-contributive to the world of comp. sci. *could* do that.
I mean: is there a reason for why or why not Microsoft conceals source code for Windows 7? Competitive Advantage, maybe? What do you think?
it's generally understood in the programming industry that a great deal of techies lack business sense.
