Shirky on LazyWeb

I’ve already written about Ben Hammersley’s implementation of LazyWeb in this space, but a much deeper and more insightful look at it (and its potential for changing how software gets developed) by Clay Shirky is up today on O’Reilly’s OpenP2P.com. (The article also clarifies how LazyWeb came about — the idea, as well as the term “LazyWeb”, were originally developed and presented by Matt Jones, with Hammersley’s work being an implementation based on Jones’ concept.)

Thanks to Slashdot for the pointer (and associated discussion).

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
