So now that the whole new syndication format concept is spilling over into publishing APIs, I have a vested interest in the outcome. So here’s the plan. Let me know when you are all done arguing and namecalling and have a draft spec. Then I’ll be happy to throw my two cents in. Until then, I don’t have the time, energy, or interest to participate.

i agree. and when said draft spec appears, i would be more than willing to help bang out a perl api for it. until then, i keep wishing for aerosol xanax that could be dispersed over large areas.

THANK YOU! I looked long and hard for a spec on their site. It's all theorizing. They don't like Dave Winer, we get it, give us a draft already. I'm ready to publish my own spec out of frustration. "We don't have time to discuss this in a committe!"
