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.
