Today is Community Manager Appreciation Day. Now, I have to admit, I don't usually partake in the day all that much. The skeptic in me thinks doing so could be a little self-indulgent and the optimist thinks that we should appreciate great community leaders every day, not merely one day a year. Regardless, in respect of the occasion, I want to delve a little into why I think this work is so important, particularly in the way it empowers people from all walks of life.
Building your IT infrastructure is often a complicated dance of negotiating conflicting needs. Engineers have ideas of cool things they want to build.

I was doing some work in the yard and I wanted to know the smallest circle that would fit around a 4x6 inch post. Of course, just as a 2x4 is not 2 inches by 4 inches, a 4x6 post (what they call its "nominal" dimensions) is actually 3.5 inches by 5.5 inches, so this smallest circle has as its diameter the diagonal of that 3.5x5.5-inch rectangle. Pythagoras tells us that will be the square root of the sum of 3.5 squared and 5.5 squared. At the time, I only had my cell phone, which has a calculator with only basic math operations, so how do you get the square root of 42.5?
