To the list: Hi. I am a journalist putting together a popular "Internet guide" type of article for Fortune Magazine, to appear in November. I've been following XML since Spring of last year, and I've been following this mailing list in the past couple of months. I must say as a casual observer, watching from the sidelines, and with little technical authority, I'm nonetheless quite inspired by what you folks are discussing and by the possibilities that XML offers. I've read the W3C's volume on XML, published by O'Reilly, in which many of you have written excellent, thoughtful articles, and I've been playing with some of the Mozilla stuff. While all this is still a work in progress, I generally assume you folks are all fairly bright and will make this stuff happen, ultimately. I plan to present XML in my article as one of the fundamental changes that will take place on the Web over the next year to year-and-a-half. My primary source of inspiration is the work Netscape has done with its UI -- the RDF work, fetching the front-end from the network, and letting Web sites configure browser tool bars, etc. And, of course, what each of you has written on the importance of XML for organizing libraries of knowledge in domains, such as math and chemistry, and for making possible new, non-browser types of applications. At any rate, as a journalist I think XML sounds like a great step forward for the Web and I plan to give this a positive spin in my Fortune piece. If anyone would like to add to/quibble with my views, please by all means do so. Thanks, and keep up the good work. Tiernan Ray freelance journalist xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
