This is fascinating: I have made it to James McGovern’s blogroll, under the friendly heading “folks I mentor”. (With DHH, Obie and James Robertson, I feel in good company.) Whatever you think of him, his arrogance his impressive :-)
James is a self-proclaimed “though leader”. I recall having linked to him once before, but have since refrained from it, mostly because I found all of his writing to be too ignorant to be worthy of being mentioned.
