RE:  XML doesn't deserve its "X".
How about this:  it is time for the innovation 
in computers in general and the web in particular 
to stop.  It is time for a regulated standard to 
be created and enforced by statute such that if 
one buys a computer and a program to run on it 
today, it will run on a computer that you buy 
50 years from now, and that the computer you 
buy today will run any program written 50 
years from now.

It works for TV and automobiles.  Why not computers?
We must get out of the experimenter/hobbyist 
phase and enable people to get the most out 
of their investment.  The situation today 
is ALL Bill Gates' fault, of course.


That's not an original thought or even a troll. 
It was proposed in an article this past weekend 
and comes from a journalist think tank type.

The next new thing will be an old thing 
that had a short burst of notoriety, was 
dissed, and will be renamed and dressed, 
and attributed to a 15 year old genius 
(his mother swears he is) in Nebraska. 
The money on the Next New Thing will of 
course be mostly made by the really old 
guys (45+ at least) who pay for the 
prominent position on Google, in trades, 
and on NPR.  C looks awfully warm and fuzzy.
