And while Echo/Necho/Atom/Pie has found yet another name, Dave Winer realizes he has lost this one, and stops wielding Userlands copyright like a blunt weapon as posted to Sam Ruby's blog. Ruby's posting comes with a 'maybe we can get along' hopeful message, but two comments down we learn from Bill Kearney that
Atom isn't about RSS. Atom is a lot more than just syndication.
That has to be a new record in forgetfulness, or if not, it is exactly why Winer, and other reinvention critics, is right about the Echo/Necho/Atom/Pie* project.

Does Echo/Necho/Atom/Pie sound more like
- A John le Carr? novel taking its title from a nursery rhyme
- Just a nursery rhyme
