-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Shitty reporting strikes again... ZDNet "reports" on the whole del.icio.us/de.lirio.us thing, totally ignoring the fact that this Steve Mallet person did not write the software that runs his site.
I don't know if this moron is representing himself as the author or what, but wow, ZDNet. Good job there.
I'm not sure if he wants to claim authorship either; his announcement of it (http://www.osdir.com/pipermail/datalibre-discuss/2005-March/000206.html) didn't really indicate the extent to which he did, or didn't, develop the software.Posted by: ubernostrum at April 15, 2005 1:35 AM
From talking to Rik over the course of a few weeks, his ambiguity on who was "developing" was something of an annoyance. In the ZDNet articles comments, he eventually clarified the matter after some fellow #tildedotters bitched about it.Posted by: bda at April 15, 2005 4:40 AM
