Per Sam Ruby’s request, this is an appeal for someone who matters at Apple to please look here. Obviously, there are people at Apple who understand the Net, but for the ones who seem not to, the ones who built the iTunes RSS, here’s how it works: The Internet isn’t a thing. It’s an agreement. A set of agreements actually, and when you go out and build software without trying to understand them, you’re damaging the Net and you’re damaging your own future. Because and simple-minded and platitudinous as it sounds, business works better when things work together, and we have agreements in place to make things work together, and we should use them.
