It’s just data

Shameless Pandering

OK, so I don’t normally beg for links.  In fact, I never do.  It very unbecoming, and — quite frankly — I’m happy with the amount of traffic I attract.  Not too little, and not too much.

All that being said, I want to increase the chances that the following information finds its way into Apple.  And Disney.  But mostly Apple.

Read the comments.  They are a precious combination of funny, insightful, and sad.  Very, very sad.

So, if you can spare a link for the cause, I would appreciate it.  Thanks.


call me insightful and i will think about it... ;-)

actually - i already pointed to your piece on closed specs. you still need more linklove let me know. like i said, i will join the “open media”

Personally, I usually think that the tech industry has gotten a little too “standards happy”. Moreover, I think that good standards need “extension points” that ensure extended capabillity without sacrificing compatibility. J2EE has a good and bad...

Behold, an updated spec:

Still not prefect: the block tag is still something of a mystery, I’m working on the assumption that it’s just empty and that its presence  blocks the channel or item from appearing in the music store.
