Open Komodo! Huzzah!

It's somewhat inexcusable of me to not have blogged about the release of Open Komodo.

Very few of the Web IDE vendors seem to really "get" the web, and along with the folks at Aptana and Panic, the ActiveState bunch have impressed the hell out of me with their constant support of Open Source, deep understanding of why webdev sucks, and what they can do to fix it.

It's exciting to see Komodo, one of the few editors that has ever tempted me away from vim (even if for short spells), open up and make real steps to being "The Open Web's Eclipse".

Slides from my "Standards Heresy" Talk

Above is the PDF from today's talk. I had a good (but unfortunately truncated) discussion with Aaron Gustafson afterward, and it appears that there are those on the standards advocacy front who understand that those of us who "just make it work" for a living aren't evil and want exactly the same things. Hopefully this will open up a broader discussion (although I suppose that posting something on a blog hardly counts as "discussion").
