Tim Bray Interview

A great interview with one of the founders of XML and Atom, Tim Bray. Some excerpts follow.

Tim Bray: The XML serialization of RDF is horrible; it’s a botched job.

Tim Bray: In any case, the world of RSS has been kind of wild and woolly and prone to flaming and bad behavior, and partly as a result, there are a lot of versions and none of them is specified that well. So I’m co-chairing an IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) working group that is publishing a protocol under the name Atom that tries to capture all of the prior art in this stage and might provide a good basis for winding down the syndication wars. I think it’s going to have an impact.
