Tim Bray Throws His Hat into The Android Ring Because He Hates The iPhone

Tim Bray, co-inventor of XML and former Sun employee, now works for Google as a “Developer Advocate” for Android. In a blog, he explained that he made the move partly because he hates the iPhone way of doing things:

“The iPhone vision of the mobile Internet’s future omits controversy, sex, and freedom, but includes strict limits on who can know what and who can say what. It’s a sterile Disney-fied walled garden surrounded by sharp-toothed lawyers. The people who create the apps serve at the landlord’s pleasure and fear his anger. I hate it.”
