Quick links 13 Feb, 2004
Crikey. Things have been getting Atomic over at Russell Beattie’s site: Russ takes issue with Mark Pilgrim. I can kind of see his point too. This whole Atom thing is just fine as a technical notion. It’s the pathetic pontification and grand-standing going on around it that is pure pants. I hold Atom responsible for the degradation of a great site: diveintomark. It used to be really interesting, with plenty of opinion on all kinds of things. Now? RSS and Atom talk. Yawn.

- The Register: ‘Help! I married a Net porn star’
- java.net: Source control, change tracking, and regular builds
