ArsDigita: From Start-Up to Bust-Up
...There are some obvious missing pieces...
Don, can you tell us or point to links for the mising pieces? I'd like to hear both sides of the story.
As this is new to me and the old link is not working, so I post it here for people like me who never worked for Arsdigita and know name mostly from reading it in sripts headers..
It's not worth rehashing. It's even a bit annoying. Ok, more than a bit.
The fact is that based on what I have seen, the currently shipping OpenACS is far superior in terms of code quality, documentation, and robustness to anything aD ever shipped.
It is as out of place as bringing up Henry Ford's views on history or of WWII in a discussion of current Ford cars - irrelevant.
but are you trying to say that Henry Ford did not exist and the car was invented in 2004?
not very nice. especially that todays car still runs on old parts.
