Re: Moving beyond disillusionment

Start writing specs but first do a better job at writing requirements. Specs are easy to share. Start implementing specs and modifying them based on results. Take the specs to a legitimate and competent standards bodies for publication. Consortia are a good source of specs because their members have customers with immediate requirements. They are a bad way to write standards because the customer requirements and the vendor interests dominate the discussion with short range objectives. Inner loop and outer loop. The inner loop is what people refer to when they talk about "internet time". Think about nesting internet time inside project time and put that outer loop in the hands of organizations that are empowered and practiced for long term projects. Quit cheerleading people and start cheerleading requirements. The way out of disillusionment is to practice collaboration and understand what is easy and quick versus what is hard but stable: learning. Enterprises that thrive learn. The web can't do that for you. It destabilizes your processes and drives you back and forth, willy nilly across the same ground. It does not produce coherence. It wastes energy. It repeats history. Worse, it loses referential integrity of concepts so learning is serendipitous at best and superstitious at worst. The web does not learn. It imitates. len xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
