Open Sores

Dave Winer and Tim Bray clearly get on each other’s nerves. Some would say that’s understandable….;-). Yesterday resurrected an old disagreement over RSS (of course). By way of background, Dave mentions today:

I heard, through Britt Blaser that Mitch Kapor says he’s spending a career implementing my designs. How about that. Now we’re going to open source Frontier, to give Mitch a run for his money. He’s got much more money of course, but I’ve got more source.

Actually, the comment was more general, and even more generous. I told Dave that Mitch had said that the software industry has spent the last 10 years following the trends that Dave Winer starts.

It’s not about competition, but leadership.
