Mea Culpa

I hate Twitter. It amplifies the emotional content of what should be a rational discussion.

I was dismayed to see a twitterstorm of complaints about the ODI report on PDF and data.

I'm especially embarrassed that I asserted (too convincingly) anything about stars. The 5-star evaluation of file formats was a nice idea, but shouldn't apply to formats at all.

Whether something is "open" depends on the tools you have, as I explore in Open Data and Documents, the scale doesn't match what people actually value.

I love Twitter. I think the twitter responses have been useful in at least reaching the user community. Thanks.

Join in on the discussion.
