I've stayed away from this whole Echo project
that has a gang of the weblog community publically feuding with Dave Winer
, who made much of what the Echo project is trying to reinvent happen in the first place. Dave has made mistakes over this as I'm sure we all have with things we're passionate about. But, he doesn't deserve the ridicule I've seen from a number of people. The attacks often get personal and don't address any real issues.
Dave wrote a short essay
today on why he's concerned about the Echo project and what he's waiting to hear from those involved. I think he's being very resonable in this essay. He did, afterall, invent the very technologies
that the people behind Echo seem hell bent to tear down and then bring back to much of its original form.
