Dave Winer – Too much linear thinking in news:
“I think they [Circa] were on to something. Starting topics, and then adding stories to each topic as the news comes in. A story isn't something that's published once and done, it's more of a process.
[…] Circa resisted joining the open web. I think that was a fundamental mistake. […] Each story must have a way to get to it through a Web address.
[…] There's never been a long-term thriving tech company that wasn't run by a user.”
