Rebooting the Internet dev process

Dave Winer:

PS: I wrote this story in response to a request from my alma mater that I explain the value that Madison has for me. It’s pretty simple. It turned my life in a great, productive and happy direction. That’s a lot to ask of a school. But it delivered. I’m sure they didn’t know they were doing it, but that’s fine. It’s not their job to know, just to create an environment where these kinds of things can happen.

I completely agree with Dave’s words. The UW-Madison provided me with a fertile environment to think and create. I hope it continues to do the same for decades to come.
