   Atom 1.0 is Baked

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I've been reviewing this document.  The Atom 
tribe did a heckuva good job cleaning up and 
tightening the RSS-clone.  I think this is a 
good doc to review.  Comments welcome.  Thanks 
to Tim for posting this to his blog.

Watching the Schema debates and sitting on a
few of the other standards lists, I am increasingly 
impressed with the productivity possible when 
wikis are employed and the amount of process is 
reduced to the minimum required.  Even if the 
onlist noise ratio is high, the use of politics 
to determine outcomes is more reasonable, the 
ability to get far opportunities closer together 
is better, and overall, it seems to produce a 
better specification.  

Standards wonks pay heed.  

Money tightens in the second terms of 
administrations and the long term technical 
innovations can fade away given a tight 
schedule and a distempered White House.
Running code and rough consensus still 
gets results faster.
