[kaoyobsz] Surrounded by wonderful people

If you find yourself at an event, venue, or in an organization a surrounded by (what you perceive as) wonderful people, look for the mechanisms which kept out those who aren't wonderful.  These are often ugly institutionalized mechanisms.

Also, reflect on your reluctance to repeal or remove those mechanisms (and you can understand how similar such mechanisms persist).

Inspiration is from quite afar: in chess, the winner is the player who made the next-to-last mistake.  Corollary: analyze your victories critically.
