Yeah, right. Programming robustly in sh or the common alternatives is a skill very few people have.

Overall, this pitch reminds me of the risible EdgeRyders: "Edgeryders LBG is a corporate shell exacty analogous to shells for computer software: an interface between the client and the collective intelligence engine of the system – which does not live in the shell, but in the community"


(I would link to their own about page, but the link is broken on their OWN flaky website, http://edgeryders.eu )
