I remember during the Radio 8 beta test period, Dave Winer asked the
question, "Is there any reason this shouldn't be version 8 [rather than
I now pose the question (which I suspect has already be kicked around within
Macrobyte's executive wash rooms) "Is there any reason this shouldn't be
verion 2.0 of Conversant?"
I would argue that the Conversant which has run Macrobyte's hosting service
was version 1, and that the mere fact that this is user-installable and runs
on an additional Userland app (Radio) makes it worthy of version 2. Hell,
why not call it 'Conversant 11' and make the tag line: "This goes to eleven"
(think Spinal Tap).
