Dave has written that he is tentatively supporting Echo. Echo is the name of the initiative to try to put disagreements about blogging standards aside and try to move forward. This is great news.

Kudos, Dave!

Well, "tentatively" was right. He seems to have changed his mind now. And Ben Trott is on the business end of his wrath.

Scripting.com went offline briefly today ("This is what it would look like if there were no Scripting News"), What looked to be an opportunity for everybody (especially Winer) to cool down was lost when he reappeared a little later.

Dave *is* supporting Echo. It is just that he is vexed that a lot of people don't want to give XML-RPC, Metaweblog API, and/or RSS 2.0 the benefit of doubt. Understandably, since they are his creations (or which he has contributed to). Yet, sometimes it's time for something new (and hopefully better). Since Echo will be a product of a "mind-melt" of numerous developers and internet-gurus, one can only have high expectations.
