tech plenary

The presentations from the W3C tech plenary Wednesday seem to be online 
(thanks to http://tantek.com/log/2003/03.html for the links. See his 
descriptions and links to others you might like better than my selection).  
Here are links to my own favorites:

Steven Pemberton brought down the house with this rant against the 
complexity that has been inflicted on the XML family of specs by the 
assumption that "we don't have to worry about authoring ease," which led to 
a "death by 1000 cuts" for simplicity.

"Why not leave it to authoring tools?
People don't use 'em.
It's a band-aid design approach: one bad design, a thousand fixes
Anyway, have you ever looked at the quality of the markup produced by most 
user agents?"

Noah Mendelsohn quite compellingly answered the question of whether Web 
services are or are not part of "the Web." 

"Relationship to the Web(s):
- Always leverages (but some users misuse) the Web of names (URIs)
- Often leverages (but some users misuse) the Web of widely deployed 
- SOAP 1.2 encourages RESTful use of HTTP.
SOAP 1.2 lets you do it right, now we have to convince our users."
