Tonight, I attended the Toronto OPML editor roadshow. Attending the roadshow was Dave Winer, Calvin Ouyang (a good friend), Albert (x-boss and good friend), Joey de Villa (was-OC) and many other great people (sorry I can't name y'all). This was the first time I met Dave. Our introduction went like this (not exact words).
Dave: Are you Randy?
Dave: Thanks for not bringing up the RSS/Atom format thing.
I think Dave was truly afraid that I might do the format flame war thing. Dave, I appreciate the thanks, but I'm gonna do you worse. I'm gonna tell everybody your secret formula.
I don't know how many times Albert and I have discussed how important passion is in creation. For all you David-Winer-wannabees out there, I've told you his secret before and I'm telling you again.
OPML is the next podcast/RSS/SOAP/XML-RPC thing and MetaWeblogAPI might be on the coat tails.
By the way, Murphy willing, I should be on Dave's next podcast. A new forum, where I can make an ass of myself </BOGU>
