Bill Brown

A complicated man.

I totally called it. Today’s DaveNet essay—Comments on the Google-Blogger deal—is rife with self-serving comments (“… the blogging developer community was founded, in 1996 or 1999 depending on whose histories you read or believe.”), petulant pouting (“Every so often a major company would come for a visit … and we never heard the question from Google, even though we know their investors and a few of the execs at Google. They bought Blogger, apparently, without talking to the field of competitors.”), and stunning self-promotion (“However, Google will find this is already a competitive market, UserLand already offers a deeper product….”). It’s quintessential Dave and it sickens me.
