RSS + Atom

| | Comments (0)
Dave Winer wants Atom to join forces with RSS. I pointed out the fact, in the comments, that this defeated part of the point of Atom, which is to get away from Dave. He deleted my comment.

At least he is interested in having an honest discussion about the real issues involved. (*cough*) I know it doesn't sound like personality conflicts are real issues, but in Dave's case, they are. Without Dave and his intolerable personality, Atom would not exist. The Atom developers would already have worked with him to turn RSS into something better, instead of starting a separate project.

To have any discussion of merging the projects without discussing Dave's personality and his influence over the final result makes no sense whatsoever.
