I believed the best way to move software forward was to inform Apple programmers about better ways to build software — to infect the best top-downer minds with fertile discontent.
My hope was that developers would care primarily about user experience yet also be passionate about utilizing lingual and tooling advances.
C4 was my attempt to push on the Apple community from the bottom-up.
With that background in place, I hope you can understand how Section 3.3.1 has broken my spirit.
I don’t know Jonathan Rentzsch. I never attended C4. I don’t have any stake in the iPhone application development space. I understand it is easy to armchair quarterback. I understand he may not be being figurative when he says his spirit is broken.
But will all respect, ending C4 over Section 3.3.1 seems odd.
It would seem that the mission of C4, as he describes it in his post, is needed more than ever.
