Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Dave Winer moved the RSS 2.0 spec from Userland to the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. It is now licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share Alike license. There is now an advisory board.

The initial members of the board are Dave Winer, Berkman fellow and author of the RSS 2.0 spec; Jon Udell, lead analyst for InfoWorld and columnist for the O'Reilly Network; and Brent Simmons of Ranchero Software, author of NetNewsWire, a leading RSS-based application. When the board makes a decision it will be by majority vote.

I think this is a great step toward a peace process in the "great RSS debate". Dan Gillmor writes about this in more detail on his blog.

I think we should call a cease-fire at this point...

An excellent move. Can mean only good things for RSS, but also for the Atom Project.

1st action item they should deal with is ENT. It's a kosker namespace extension - and provides us teh capability of embedding topics into an RSS 2.0 feed.

Should be supported by Atom as well.
