Stack Overflow Isn’t Very Welcoming. It’s Time for That to Change.

It’s nice to see any technical community looking at what it’s doing well and what it can do better. I especially love this goal:

Let’s reject the false dichotomy between quality and kindness. Quality matters because it means posts can help more people. But a larger, more diverse community produces better artifacts, not worse ones.

Stack Overflow is huge. It doesn’t need to do the right thing. The leadership is making an important choice.
