This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
In the intro, a quick review of the tabletop game, "The Stars are Right".
The hacker word of the week this week is Finagle's Law.
The feature this week is a monologue considering the true burden of forking. It was inspired by my recent reading of Clay Shirky's excellent, "Here Comes Everybody".
