Re: XML.COM: How I Learned to Love daBomb

It's also weird that they ignore the interesting stuff that is happening in
web services, lamenting that the BigCo's never do anything interesting. The
bug is with the reporters -- they prove over and over that the BigCo's don't
make interesting software, and then given the opportunity they prove it
again. And again. And again. You'd think they'd see the pattern by now.

In the meantime, Blogger is kicking butt, adding new services every day, and
a really interesting developer community is forming. You'd think that
XML.Com would take notice, a headline like "Something is Happening in Web
Services After All." An interview with Evan Williams saying "I have no idea
how this stuff works but we're having a lot of fun," or something like that.
