I'm in the middle of reading "Getting To Yes" and it's reacting with Joe Hewitt's recent blog post in my brain.

If we view the Web as a social construct--the product of a negotiation--then its very strength lies in the fact that all the major players were brought together, solved some very big problems concerning their core interests, and arrived at a solution. If instead they were given a piece of source code and told to distribute it with their OS or hardware device--well, it would be kind of like saying that one country should be the arbiter of international law. Nobody would listen and everyone would just go their own way.

The Web's strength and weakness lies in the fact that it's the product of a multilateral negotiation. It inherently moves slower than technology products that aren't the product of such negotiations, but it's also far more universal as a result.

I have had my fill of Django and its complexities. I am just using PHP for my simple server-side needs now, and it is Good Enough.

This is a Torontonian's idea of a joke. It's not funny in America because it's just the Tea Party stance.

Today I saw a google-served ad for The Economist on nitrome.com, a site full of web-based games for kids. The filter bubble is strangely autistic.
