Open Turds

I’ve open-sourced a lot of pretty shit code.

So whenever somebody says “I’m not open-sourcing this because the code is shit”, I think: wow, it must be spectacularly bad.

And that only makes me want to see it more.

    I used to have this fear a lot! But I kind of got over it when I realised how shit a lot of big open source projects are, and how no one seems to look at the code and care anyway 🙃
