‘It’s Borderline Stupid How Easy It Was’

Niclas Darville, on creating a JSON Feed template for Jekyll:
It literally took me longer to write this blog post than the JSON feed code, because I couldn’t get Jekyll to escape the Liquid code example.
On Twitter, Darville wrote:
One of the best things about @jsonfeed is how well it works as a Hello World kind of programming exercise. Sure beats to-do lists.
Jason McIntosh described adding JSON Feed support to his home-grown blog engine as a “blowing-off-steam project”. These reactions are exactly what I mean about JSON Feed being fun. There’s a time and place for specs that are drop-dead serious, but I think it’s often overlooked just how important fun can be in having a new spec gain traction.
