Peer to Peer Publishing

Just had a fabulous talk from Meg, peppered with wonderful interjections from Jamie King of metamute.

Jamie's really interesting - I want to talk to him more. He's the sort of person who is nearly always spoiling for a fight, but reminds you of your responsibilities. 'Oh shit, yes, I have a conscience'.

He's taken issue with me on a few points, and once mistook me for a union-basher, but I've always managed to explain why I've said what I've said. Or point out that he'd completely misunderstood me on the union thing. But it did make me think about whether that's always the case... he should definitely keep badgering away!!!!

Oh, one other thing. Despite deliberate attempts at appearing to the contrary, the couple who make Movable Type are doing it as a full-time job and not getting paid. I'm now impelled to make a donation because it's a great, great product.

I wonder whether we need to start a campaign for 'subsistence payment for blogging tool authors'? Tom officially declares the start of the SAVE BEN AND MENA CAMPAIGN.
