Creative Commons license does not equal an open standard

Ray Ozzie and Dave Winer are both gurus I respect but no matter how great the Simple Sharing Extensions for RSS are, putting SSE under a Creative Commons license does not make them an open standard. I am very skeptical that non M*crosoft software using SSE will be first class citizens, but I would love to be proven wrong.


i don't mind if a "de facto" standard is devloped in secret (I understand there's this religion called "time to market" :-) !) as long as once it's released it's truly open, i.e. there is an open mailing list, wiki and blog, that's maintained and gardened

unfortunately none of the old skool bigCos like Apple and Microsoft seem to grok this
