snydeq writes “InfoWorld’s Dan Tynan takes a humorous look at six ‘sects’ of fanatical tech loyalists. ‘Fandom, devotion, obsession — certain technologies have a way of inspiring an extremely loyal following. So committed are these devotees, you might as well call them technology cults,’ Tynan writes in this update to last year’s list, which included fans of the Newton, Commodore, and Ruby on Rails, among other technologies. ‘Sometimes these cults are inspired by elegant lines of code. Other times it’s dedication to an ideal. Some are looking to transform the way software is made. Others hope to transform humanity itself. And some just want to argue about it all — endlessly and at great length.’”
