About Dave Winer

I’ve been a blogger as long as there’s been such a thing, starting in 1996 with a blog around a project I was doing at HotWired, where I was a contributing editor.

I’ve been credited with developing or co-developing many popular Internet technologies, including RSS, OPML, XML-RPC, SOAP. I’ve been a software developer since the mid-late 70s, having worked on outliners, presentations software, scripting, content management and blogging tools.

I’ve been a lead developer, company executive, board member, investor, editor, research fellow and blogger.

    I saw some of your blog entries on wireless power. Just wondering if you know any good conferences and trade shows I can attend. Mike
