"The Centre"

Man: What OS is that then?

Glenda: I dunno, Must be plan 9.

Man: Why?

Glenda: It hasn't got sh*t all over it.

Q: What is "The Centre"?

A: We can only explain by example, here is a quote from a founder of The Centre:

We live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with source code. Who's gonna do it? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. And my existence, while geeky and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because, deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me writing code, you *need* me writing code. We use works like grok, compile, latte. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who uses the API that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a keyboard and write a octree. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
