The RSS Advisory Board just turned 20. It was launched on July 18, 2003 -- the same day Harvard was given the RSS specification and released it under Creative Commons for the board to manage. I became a member 10 months later and have been one since then, often as the chairman and always as the webmaster.
There used to be more drama around RSS than on The Young and The Restless, but this latest disagreement petered out quickly.
I guess 20 years has made us all old and restful.
On that note I need to lie down.
