Well it seems that News.com can't get the facts straight. David Becker in "RSS gets down to business" writes:
Blogging pioneer Dave Winer developed RSS several years ago as a way to automatically receive new chunks of frequently updated content. The format has caught on primarily for keeping track of Web logs and news sites, but developers see applications for many other types of dynamic content, from e-mail to server status reports.
Eh? I seem to remember Netscape developing RSS. In fact, when I check the RSS History page (that Dave wrote) it confirms this theory.
And, David, it's "weblog" not "web log." My web server produces logs all day log. Some folks refer to them as "access logs" or "web server logs" or even "web logs" for short. But they have little to do with the larger notions of weblog. I know, it's confusing. But getting it right is your job, mmmkay?
