Kevin this is an *excellent* point. Thanks for the reminder.
Was invented by myself when I worked at Microsoft, Eric Meyer of Complex
Spiral consulting, and Matt Mullenweg of Wordpress fame.
None of them Technorati (at the time).
Didn't the concept come from you and David Sifry, and then I simply
suggested using the rel (now rev) attribute in order to make it valid?

Kevin, myself (again, while I was at Microsoft), Mark Pilgrim (IBM), and
Morten W. Petersen (independent).

rel-license as well was proposed back then when I had yet to start working
So I suppose people could drum up a conspiracy theory about Microsoft and
Technorati working on open standards...
