I just got a call from Paul Festa of C|Net, who’s working on a story about Pie/Echo/Atom. He tried, several times, to get me to say something nasty about Dave Winer, coming at it from two or three different directions. I wouldn’t bite (sorry Paul), but I do think there’s a story here and Dave’s one of the people in it. I think the people in this story care about the human voice on the Net; they’re are working hard on improving the landscape and (mostly) not getting paid for it, because this is worth working on. And if you can’t see why, nothing I or Paul Festa can say can possibly help you.
