I can definitely agree with THAT! I'm reminded with Computerworld's interview with Clay Shirky http://www.computerworld.com/cwi/stories/0,1199,NAV47-81_STO67716,00.html "To most people, Napster meant kids stealing music. But to application designers, what it did was build a five 9s [99.999% uptime] service on fantastically unreliable hardware. At its height, Napster had 70 million unpaid system administrators, each operating a tiny, unreliable server. But if you needed a Britney Spears song at 3 a.m., it was there, period." > >The mainstream will be the mainstream until enough people (and >organizations) leave it.

And that [somehow!] reminds me of my favorite link for today: http://www.techreview.com/articles/schrage0102.asp "?Invention is a flower, innovation is a weed? (TR November/December 1999). That is, an original idea can be brilliant, profound and compelling?but what ultimately gives it power and influence is that it spreads. Great ideas aren?t enough; they have to be adoptable and adaptable. They have to thrive outside the nurturing greenhouse and the loving gardener?s care." While the WS-I are cultivating the flowerbeds, we here on xml-dev do our duty blowing on the dandelion puffs to disperse the weeds. :~)
