To Choose the Cathedral over the Bazaar

From The Economist:
Moreover, the ease with which the internet spreads wrong-headedness–to say nothing of lies and slander–is offset by the ease with which it spreads insights and ideas. To regret the glorious fecundity of new media is to choose the hushed reverence of the cathedral over the din of the bazaar.

A really brilliant sentence... making 'hidden' reference to the popular book "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" (a book on Linux and opensource) by Eric Raymond.

From the blog of opensource evangelist Eric Raymond.
