comment Is it OK to learn an algorithm from an open source project, and then implement it in a closed source project?
true unless a provisional patent was filed. I am not a lawyer, but as far as I understand those can be filed and refiled indefinitely and it's impossible to know if one has been filed because their contents aren't made public.

comment What are your opinions on “Gamification”?
+1 becaues I agree gamification is necessary and the sites you mentioned use it. However, I do not think that followers on twitter/facebook and connections on LinkedIn are equatable to reputation on SO. Gamification is a subset of game dynamics (gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/3131/…) which amount to much more than a number associated with your name.

comment What's a good Programming Metaphor?
I guess learning a programming language is somewhat analogous to learning a foreign language. However, the act of computer programming is very different from the common act of talking/writing. Computer programming requires at least: precision, innovation, concentration, creativity, organization, persistence, and rigorous logic.
