Features, Office People say I rant too much. I complain and complain, but never seem to really like anything. As I promised a few weeks ago, I will talk about things I love about computers. After explaining why I like to complain and rant, this column will solely deal with fluffy bunnies, green meadows, blue skies, and shiny, happy people. I promise.

>But that passion burns people's capacity to think without bias

Too much of anything is not good. I don't think anyone would argue with that. But then again, that applies to passion in general, not just to computers.

>Additionally, most of these 'passionate people' will try to impose their standards unto others. Will try their best to make them appear far better than the others, elevating themselves

That may be true, but so is the reverse. Some people go to lengths to distance themselves from computers, saying they are just tools, and in so doing, "try their best to make them appear far better than the others, elevating themselves." I agree completely with your post.
