Nepotism and more

I checked lambdaconf's page. One big cult-like family operation.

Their "Chief Prophet of Functional Programming" John De Goes, seems to have a philosophical bent displayed at his twitter account that quite a few studies show to cause psychological and physical problems later in one's life... Specifically "The ability to delay gratification is one of the best predictors for success in achieving one's goals in life. It's the heart of discipline." Delaying gratification makes you sick but does allow one to achieve material success you will never really enjoy, later. It also allows a cult to redirect YOUR gratification to the fulfilling of theirs.

These people are a cult.
