Sam reflects on the discussion in Dave Winer's session:

What amazed me most is that things I take for granted like RSS and referrers and how other experienced bloggers seem to be just discovering such concepts. [ Sam Ruby ]

Ditto for me. I've been running an RSS channel for my personal homepage since 1999. In 2000, I wrote a report on Internet groupware that recommended pushbutton web publishing, RSS aggregators, and RSS readers as engines of a new era of scientific collaboration.

It's taking much longer than I thought. But it does appear we are finally approaching the tipping point for this cluster of technologies.
