Faraday Romanticism  
"Spurning all honours for himself, Faraday disparaged inventors with mercenary aims, declaring that the pursuit of truth should be a reward in itself."
- Patricia Fara, Entertainment for Angels: Electricity in the Enlightenment

It seems to me that the open source community is filled with Faraday romantics.
