Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
I offered to install Roller for Sun, but noooooooo, they had to go and steal (from O'Reilly) some rinky-dink little blogging package. Sheeesh! Are those blogs for real? They are all identical, no themes. Some of them look a little forced, as in "you will blog now please employee #76654, get to work." The others look and feel like the O'Reilly blogs, you know, the ones where the author is maintaining two blogs: one personal blog and one O'Reilly blog which is generally not worth subscribing to. All the interesting stuff shows up on the author's personal blog and, occasionally, an article or two shows up on the author's O'Reilly blog.
Whatever. I'll get over it. Maybe some of those blogs will be successful and truly worthwhile, who knows. At least Gosling's blog looks genuine.
