comment Should a developer argue against unnecessary or harmful features?
@PeterAllenWebb I see what your saying (for what it's worth I edited the answer possibly making this discussion moot), but in my opinion if as a group including your boss, you cover the pros and cons, and the boss chooses a clearly inferior solution, he/she should be called out for it. I understand the common need managers have to squelch dissenting opinion, but to me this seems like a case of a manager not wanting to admit he was wrong -- a flaw in any manager IMO.

If your boss is so spiteful as to hold it against you that you had a better solution, you should write a letter of resignation with a photocopy for your co-workers stating you are quitting and why. It is true that sometimes poor managers get promoted, but working under one when you have alternate means only perpetuates the problem.

comment There is a (social) network / website for developers share ideas and find a team for development?
I love Github and use it for my projects, but IMO Github isn't really meant for gaging interest on an idea unless you're prepared to start coding said idea without any initial feedback.

-1 for misrepresenting Stallman's roll in 'the confusion' (chronologically, the GPL/Free Software came first, Open Source was created after), but +1 for the link to the O'Reilly book hehe.
