rtomayko says GitHub is ‘Myspace for Hackers‘ over on his blog. Flattering, yes, but read closely: this dude gets it.

From his post:

“Pull requests” happen every day over email without GitHub but, by sucking those interactions into a web application and recording certain bits and pieces as they transact, GitHub is able to 1.) guide git newbies in using fairly advanced concepts, and 2.) record that the interactions took place, which makes it possible to build entirely new types of tools.

Guilty as charged.
