Why does it seem one-upmanship and snootery are more prevalent in UK geek culture than in the US? It’s really weird.

I’ve felt this for a long time. It’s more obvious in free culture than in software to me.
I describe it as the same-five-people problem. Look on the board of most free culture type organisations and you’ll see what I mean.
I’m happy to say that Free Culture Foundation is different. We’re far from perfect, but we’re getting better. Promise.
