One LJ to another: apparently Doc Searls found my commentary worth linking to. He says "Read the whole thing.". I'm flattered - apparently my impressions of others' experiences in corporate IT were at least somewhat accurate.
I have started using Straw today in earnest, thanks to the ability to aggregate my LJ friends list. I particularly like Straw's UI. I don't think it's using Twisted - although it should be, since it's in python - but it behaves like it does. It is nice and responsive. News aggregators are cool. I'm even aggregating aggregators, most notably Planet Twisted, which if you aren't reading, you should be. It's a Planet thing.
