The Future Has Arrived

I read this today over at RadioFreeBlogistan (a blog I read regularly) and I thought, wow, this is what science fiction sounded like in the 1980s. I'm not sure I understand much of it, but it sounds so 2004 I had to reprint all of it below. Kudos if you understand what Christian Crumlish is talking about. :-)

Morbus Iff says keep Atom name for Pie format
Amphetadesk creator Morbus Iff posted to the Atom Syntax mailing list a proposal that the Pie syndication 'n' API format for weblogs just go ahead and use the name Atom and stop all this endless voting.

Looks like other list participants have endorsed the idea and votes are now flowing over to Atom. I voted for Nota and I think I'm not going to change my vote, but I'd be just as happy with Atom. I liked Pie. I liked Echo. I liked Atom. I like Nota.

I do think there's lots of retro-style logo potential around the 1950's-sounding phrase atom-powered.

Here's a link back to the original blog entry. Posted by brian at September 25, 2003 06:04 PM
