Blog/HD quotes 2

From Wikimania

Memorable quotes from Hacking Day #2

Greg Maxwell: "The problem with that [conducting a formal study of what types of vandalism wikipedia receives] is that it's not easily machine detectable, because if it were easily machine detectable, we'd have machines detecting it"

Brion Vibber: "It's not a good solution, but it's the only one that's not actively evil" (on changing how the Mediawiki parser works and in the process possibly making older pages display incorrectly)

Ivan Krstic: (Replying to a complaint about his non-standard keyboard layout) "It's a normal english keyboard - don't look at it."
