For whatever reason, a bunch of things have happened very recently that either bug me or are just the latest in a series of things that have been bugging me. Since this is a blog, I waste your time by pointing them out.
- Howard Dean dropping out of the race. Thank god. I was so sick of reading about how great this guy was on every third blog I stumbled across. Get a life people! Bloggers don't win elections, politics and big media do.
- Eric Allman cuts thru the crap on spam. He nicely explains what some of us have been saying for a while. Maybe now the morons who don't get it will understand how the spam problem came to be--or at least the incentives behind it all.
- Simon Phipps from Sun calls Eric Raymond "so out of touch" on the issue of Java and Open Source. Well, no shit. Eric is out of touch with a lot of the world. It's really a shame that otherwise intelligent people still haven't seen his crap for what it really is. I wish he'd go back to Hacker Anthropology and stop trying to grab the spotlight.
- Dave Winer calls Yahoo and Google "shitty" companies and also calls the My Yahoo RSS module "pathetic". I think this one speaks for itself, don't you?
That is all for now.
