Learning from smart tags
What I learned from the smart tags issue:
- A company that owns over 90% of the market can pull the rug out from all of us, whenever it wants.
- The cry of a million developers *can* make a difference.
But touch my words, use them as jumping points for third-party sponsorships? There’d better be a check in the mail for me.
Etiquette question: What is accepted etiquette for posting quotes from mailing list material? Webdesign-L does not maintain publically accessible archives anywhere, but is a veritable gold mine of information. Should I consider everything on the list as fair game to be blogged whenever it takes my interest (obviously maintaining credit to the original writer) or should I contact authors for permission first? No comments system yet, so see my contact page if you have a reply.
