Giving Time To Microsith
Dave Winer wants lineto-moveto and a better text editor in browsers.
"I would be happy to give Microsoft 1/4 of my time over the next year if they agreed to let me drive the development of these two things."
I wish people would give their time to the Mozilla project instead of Microsoft (as if they need anyone's free time). This way everyone gets to benefit and Microsoft doesn't get a tighter control of our lives.
I've already given Microsoft my time. I wasted over 2 years of my professional life doing ASP development when I could have been expanding my skills in more enjoyable, more powerful, less shitty technology, and probably doing a better job for my employer.
