Can you imagine the flames that would issue forth from Dave Winer if some executive at Microsoft suggested a Frontier Free Friday to protest Winer’s constant abuse of his customers and innocent bystanders? You know, something like:
What if every Friday were a Frontier-free day for the Web? You can use Frontier any day but Friday. To give something back to the Web, if you want to use my browser you would have to use Apache, Vignette, etc. — anything but Userland’s software. One day a week.
The more I read Scripting News the more I become convinced that “The Two Way Web” is every bit as much an empty marketing slogan as anything Microsoft ever comes up with.
