recent DaveNet

David Winer on Distributed Systems: I commented on this in a recent DaveNet, but no one picked it up as far as I can tell. “The economics of software favor small independent developers.” Double-click on that, and look at the ways the Big's try to undermine the Little's, but it's mostly bullshit. Where are the standards the Big's were cooking up in the early 90s. They're dead, swept away by SMTP, POP, HTTP, HTML. The tech renegades at MS fully understood this, but the industry hasn't caught onto this yet, and most of Microsoft hasn't either. [Scripting News]
