A somewhat contentious software developer, something like RMS
, but in the personalization
field. Responsible for a precursor to RSS
hosting, content distribution, forum
software, and a bunch of other interesting ideas such as scriptingNews
. He is generally focussed on promoting individual, non-commercial content and online communities
Is also like RMS in that one reason he's famous is because of his ego and tendency for quarrelling with Tim O'Reilly.
