RSS JournoFunnies

Tim Bray, Ongoing, Aug 05, 2003

Tim Bray follows up the CNet article about the great RSS dust-up. Some good dialogue about what happens when journalists interview bloggers. And some good bits about the role of personalities in technology. This, I think, is true: "Who built the Great Pyramids, and the Roman Roads, and the Postal System, and the Welfare State and Interstates and the Internet? People. Do you believe for a microsecond that any one of those got done without a maelstrom of passionate, bitter personality issues? Does anyone believe for a second that RSS would be where it is today without Dave putting his great big huge personality behind it?"
