I really love, about #dw, that I am not made to feel socially awkward when I bring up technical stuff. Even via text, the feeling of blankfaced uncomprehending silence comes across very clearly, and it's very uncomfortable.

I also love that others bringing up issues in a non-technical manner is also welcome. (Though I sometimes worry that when someone says something in a non-technical fashion, I reply too-technically, using terms that are unfamiliar with the other person. )

It's hard, sometimes, to gauge where someone else is, technically, but for the most part, it seems to me that things have worked out both ways. I've had to worry before about potential mistranslations from geek-to-normal and normal-to-geek, and potential alienation on either side, and it feels so good to not have to worry about it here.
