"RDF/XML was the Semantic Web's 3 Mile Island incident" -- Manu Sporny http://t.co/MYt474FFz3 http://t.co/pDlg3F8cIe —@ahzf
And almost as old! “@ahzf: "RDF/XML was the Semantic Web's 3 Mile Island incident" -- Manu Sporny http://t.co/krxDSrtkF9 —@kendall
@kendall It was XML’s too.—@ndw
@ndw I assume you mean because of namespaces? (I dissent from all of this, actually. :>)—@kendall
@kendall Not namespaces per se, I’m an unrepentant fan, but the particular design that was imposed.—@ndw
@ndw Using URIs as id's for NSes?—@kendall
@kendall More the whole notion of scoping them to elements and randomly being able to reassign them. I’m on the fence about URIs for NSs.—@ndw
@ndw I'm just skeptical that any of this was that determinative.—@kendall

I have a master. I have a branch. I’ve updated master. I want to pull the changes from branch into the working copy. Easy way? #git —@ndw
@ndw you could cherry pick each commit from master to branch, using a GUI tool (gitg in my case) #git #is #fun —@olea
@ndw Or, change to master, do "git rebase <branch>". Depending on which one you want.—@tabatkins
@ndw change to master. The git merge branchnametomerge—@kingargyle
@ndw I’d use `merge` or `rebase` depending on the use case...—@rdeltour
