Winer on MS

Mr. Winer sez MS uses RSS. Just a thought on his first paragraph: "When Microsoft screws up I'll be the first to report it; but to be fair, when they do something good, I must also tell you about that." (emphasis mine)

My first reaction: when has MS ever done anything fair? For crying out loud, they deliberately violated a DOJ order and got sued again.

Second reaction: Forget must - say "choose" or something. There's no requirement to praise MS (or anyone else) when they do something good. They'll trumpet their own horn loud enough. If you like what they did, well, that's what weblogs are for.

Final reaction: Actually, maybe Mr. Winer must repeat MS' accomplishment - because I sure don't trust Redmond's largest company to report anything accurately at all.

Quadruple word score for the alliteration?
