Back in the last century I followed a few key people (by which I mean "white men”) closely as the web evolved into an app platform. I just thought to look them up to see where their attention is, today. Maybe I’d find some new inspiration?

  • Tim Bray is politically active in admirable ways, and into software architecture that’s deeper than my interests.
  • Philips Greenspun cares mostly about planes and thinks a little too highly of his own social perspective.
  • Craig McClanahan is retired and offline.
  • Jon Udell is making Hypothesis happen, which is awesome.
  • Dave Winer is still fighting for feed syndication, bless him, and too caught up in the Trump flurry.

I posted this in December 2019 during week 2387.
