Silly season [dive into mark]

88 month ago

Rod Begbie : Silly season [dive into mark] - Beautiful summation of the current Adobe Apollo/Microsoft Silverlight hype-off from Mark Pilgrim. "That poster may as well be titled "Fucked 6 Ways From Sunday," because that's what you'll be if you buy into any of this." #

jimray : Mark Pilgrim on Apollo, Silverlight and why he doesn't think you should use either - "Y’all have fun. Play with your vendor-specific runtimes. Don’t call me when you wake up one morning with a pink line in the round window and your BFF vendor won’t return your calls."

Simon Willison : Silly season - Silly season. Mark expresses exactly what I’ve been thinking. The fawning over Silverlight and Apollo is incredibly short sighted.

jcgregorio : Silly season [dive into mark] - ""building applications on the web that works."" Of course, all the commenters skip the money quote and try to defend their share-cropping platform of choice.

deusx : Silly season [dive into mark] - "Sigh. I used to have the strength to argue against such foolishness. Nowadays I’m reduced to nothing more than Grey’s-Anatomy-esque catchphrases."

nelson : Silly season - Mark is cynical so I don't have to be
