Now, I'm not saying we all start airing our dirty laundry for the entire internet to see. Any group of passionate people will have internal conflicts.
However, there has been recent activity, primarily related to the planning of DrupalCamp Chicago, that has been occurring in IRC and Basecamp. While both tools are valuable, they severely limit participation of the Chicago Drupal community as a whole.
My general feeling is that this sort of closed-door planning and decision making goes against the spirit of open source and a self-governing community, and places too much of a burden/expectation on a limited number of people.
I know that we all want what is best for the Drupal community in Chicago, and we all have different ideas of how to accomplish that. I just want to make sure everybody has a voice.
