I’m sure this is the case in a lot of fields.  There are probably really fine musicians who play in various symphony orchestras.  And then there are the total hotdogs who garner more attention and whose names become known.  There are probably genius code writers crafting wonderful programs who are overshadowed by other code writers with a flair for self-promotion or a knack for working on the high-visibility stuff.  Kara, I think, expects to compete hard and be taken seriously.  Paste, on the other hand, expects to compete stylishly and teach everyone his name.

But I could be wrong, couldn’t I?
