I really don’t understand what Dave Winer is talking about here.
Here’s an illustration of tech industry interference with RSS. That’s Sam Ruby, the lead of the Atom working group, an employee of IBM, trying to rewrite the rules of RSS 2.0. Do you understand what he’s saying? I don’t.
Dave links to this post from Sam Ruby, which, as far as I can tell, is simply a suggestion posted on a public mailing list about how RSS can move forward. I suspect that Sam has simply committed the ultimate sin of disagreeing with Dave at some point.
