Stolen from the best
By Dave Winer on Monday, October 03, 2011 at 9:51 PM.

One of my mottos is Only Steal from the Best.  #

It was with that in mind that I stole the design of my new story template from Readability. I figured they had invested so much in figuring out what readable meant in web writing, why not just lift the design and use it on my site? #

I sent a pointer to Rich Ziade, the CEO of Arc90, the company that makes Readability, with my compliments. He said in response, "It doesn't need Readability. A good sign!" Now that's a software developer I admire. A man on a mission -- to make the web more readable.  #
