I'll bet this is right up there on daypop, and here I am contributing to it. David Hornick's think piece basically saying more or less what I was saying about a year ago (excluding the swearing and "stream of consciousness gibberish" elements - and no, I'm not linking to it, it's awfully badly written rubbish, but it had a fair point buried somewhere in the middle).
What are more interesting are the comments. "Yes, it must be industry leaders who take this thing forward". No no no nooooo totally missing the point. It must be two or three geeks who are frustrated with something, who build something completely new then find themselves with a paradigm shift on their hands and a business to build while their servers fall over under the strain.
That's one major reason why I love this industry, still. I was gratified to be talking to a really lovely woman from FT R&D SF t'other day who was getting equally frustrated with the limits people seem to have imposed on their own thinking by looking at their navels incessanty.
I'm such a nay sayer, it's a disgrace. However, glad to find that for once, I'm not entirely on my own (at last). Nay sayers of the world, unite in an alternative navel gazing exercise!
