After thinking about the previous rant I made on the OGC for the past couple days, I’ve realized that the OGC is not actually the problem. Instead, my problem was with the attitude that has built up around the OGC machine — but that’s not really OGC’s fault in any direct way. I’ll post more on this later, but if I don’t post now, I’ll forget, so: Please remind me, after FOSS4G, to talk about what was wrong with my previous post, and what I think now, if I forget.
Also, there were a couple different technical mistakes in my previous email: I called the TC the “Tech Plenary”, which is not what I meant, and there are other things like that. I’ll clear up more afterwards, and I know a couple people I owe emails and other things to. So, at some point in the relatively near future, I’ll sit down and be rational instead of simply being pissy and reactive.
Though I maintain that talking about REST is meta-wankery, for the most part
