[ba-ohs-talk] argument for delayed categorization
An interesting thought from PoorButHappy, (01)
"It's better to keep the crowd (and the topics) mixed and, if you want to
organise things, retroactively tag discussions with certain topics.
Now I know why: it's the same reason why having a mixed mailing list is
usually better than a highly specialized one: you're turning your
discussion into a sterile gettho if you separate everything out cleanly.
Because that assumes people act like machines, are interested in 1 topic
only, and so on." (02)
