When Software Developers Attack

It's interesting to compare Kevin Burton's and Dave Winer's accounts of their meeting the other night. Kevin was clearly upset by the encounter, while Dave only mentions it in an off-hand way. You wouldn't know what he was talking about without reading Kevin's post.

Coderman also has some thoughts on this.

Update: I recieved the following from Dave Winer:

I didn't respond to Burton, my post wasn't about him. It was about love. It's hard for people to understand that I suppose, that creativity is not an "attack" as you put it. Best wishes, Dave

So there you have it. Perhaps I read too much into Dave's post.
