RE: RE:  Great piece on RSS
It's part of the Worse Is Better meme.  And 
Dave got it right:  weaker UDDI can be found 
at www.google.com  As noted in other threads, 
ya gets what ya pays for.  I'd sure hate to 
fly on airliners built to Shirky's philosophy, 
and I'd hate to have to depend on the opinions 
of competitors about a vendor.

The bit that other's opinions of something are 
more important than the vendor's statements 
is not only dumb, but flies directly in the 
face of how contracting actually works.  I 
can consult the newspaper or even the Better 
Business Bureau and get opinions, but when it 
comes time to sign on the dotted line, I 
want the documents from the participating 
parties.  UDDI may not be the best player, 
but it does have the quality that what one 
asserts one must back up.  Using Google, 
anyone can say anything about anyone or 
anything and that is far too easy to game.

The RESTafarians are taking a bridge too far.

More cryptic than usual today, Len.  I'm missing the connection 
with RSS.  Or maybe that's the point somehow?
