Good News, Bad News · Sigh; I’ve had mul­ti­ple jour­nal­ists on the phone, want­ing to find out “what’s re­al­ly go­ing on” with the IETF, the W3C, and Atom. They’re just look­ing for a good sto­ry (good along the lines of if it bleed­s, it leads) and I’m do­ing my best not to give them that kind. I gath­er they’re all call­ing Dave too, maybe they’ll have more luck with him. Peo­ple, this is not a big deal; it’ll go one way or an­oth­er, no­body in the Atom com­mu­ni­ty will care that much, and nei­ther stan­dards or­ga­ni­za­tion will lose any sleep; this is the one is­sue in the his­to­ry of syn­di­ca­tion tech­nol­o­gy that nobody’s get­ting very emo­tion­al over. Oh yes, the good news: one of the journos was Sean Gal­lagher from eWeek, and he’s got a pret­ty good blog; sub­scribed.
