Actually I was hinting at just the opposite. A lot of the interviewees showed me that when seeking out a project, personal qualities of community members were essential to finding a place where they eventually became successful contributors. Most of the past research on Open Source doesn't look at social and cultural contexts, so I was focusing in there. This post was done pre-analysis, and I'm working on a follow up that connects the dots.
