Dave: Don Box gave another speech last night to the .NET user group where he expanded his thoughts a bit. He said something like “look at Dave Winer. He wrote RSS, which is today being adopted faster than any other protocol.” He pointed out that Dave didn't see OASIS, or the W3C, or any other standards body. Box's point was that it matters if people use your spec, not who wrote it or what standards body blessed it.
Speaking of which, Don used my camera to demonstrate Microsoft's new InfoPath. Wow. Drag and drop XML schema design. This is the product formerly known as XDocs. Don is writing about InfoPath fairly regularly now on his weblog. [The Scobleizer Weblog]
