The Great Escape

Sam Ruby has some predictions about the weblogs.com migration:

A few relatively safe predictions: some of those who didn't much care about "unusual character" and escaping issues will suddenly get religion. And some of those who are devoutly religious about well-formedness will find the temptation to use a regular expression or equivalent technique necessary to scavenge what data can be salvaged and succumb to the temptation.

I'll throw some predictions into the hat - there'll be more progressive dialogue about permalinks and guids with respect to domain names after this happens.

And perhaps about data ownership.

And perhaps about the curse of popularity.

Mundane users don't understand the concept of unusual characters.

That's a cop out - they don't have to be mundane.
