  2. The Talk Show ✪: Ep. 192, With Special Guests Manton Reece and Brent Simmons

    The Talk Show

    ‘The Original Sin Is XML’, With Special Guests Manton Reece and Brent Simmons

    Wednesday, 31 May 2017

    Manton Reece and whisky-soaked baritone Brent Simmons join the show to talk about JSON Feed, the new spec they co-authored for syndicating things like blog posts and podcasts. We talk about their longstanding mutual interest in [Userland Frontier][f] — Dave Winer’s groundbreaking scripting environment from the early ’90s — and how that background and their mutual love for publishing on the open web and the democratization of technology ultimately led to the creation of JSON Feed, as well as their other new projects: Manton’s [Micro.blog][m] publishing platform, and Brent’s new open source Mac app, announced for the first time right here on the show. And of course a brief look ahead to next week’s WWDC 2017.

    Monday, 14 December 2015

    Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi joins the show for a wide-ranging half-hour discussion about Swift — Apple’s new programming language that just went open source.
