  • He couldn't take his ball and go home, because other people would keep playing, so he is trying to steal everyone else's ball.

    A more apt analogy would be, "He couldn't take his ball and go home, because other people would keep playing, so he is trying to pave over the playing field".

    A while back, in response to one of the notes about Dave (either from Pudge or from /., I don't remember now), I sent the URL to Owen Thomas of Digerati. He gets a lot of mileage out of Dave for his, ahem, "service". Even Owen is starting to get bored with Dave, though, as he told me in a reply, "haven't we all had enough of Dave by now?" Of course, he ended up quoting Dave about a week or two later, because the guy is rapidly becoming the Dan Quayle of the technical web.

    Personally, I have enough frustration from other sources, I don't even read Winer anymore. It's like flipping through the book "Slander" by Ann Coulter at a friend's house-- I already know, before I pick it up, that I'll be offended. So why pick it up? Anyway, I've accomplished my goal: my book on web services is now in the production phase, with no input or "advice" from Mr. Winer at any point in the writing process.
