Re: XML 2004 weblog items?
/ Michael Champion <michaelc.champion@g...> was heard to say: | Am I missing some others by subscribing to the wrong feeds? I'd be | especially interested in reaction / commentary about the keynote | speeches. I've posted a couple of things at http://norman.walsh.name/, but nothing specifically about the keynotes. | Or did Len's appearance render everyone speechless? | | Anyone who is too busy to blog but wants to dump their thoughts might | want to respond to one of the following conversation starters: | | The 'binary XML' stuff got a lot less hostile reception than I | expected. Is the world ready to hear that XML 1.x text serialization | is not suitable for wireless applications, is this old news, or what? The XBC WG seems to be helping frame the issue. I think the debate will rage again in earnest when they're done and proposals start coming along for standardizing on some particular binary encoding. | The Semantic Web stuff seemed to get a lot of favorable buzz and not | too much pushback. Is the world ready to hear that tags alone don't | make data "self-describing", was this a friendly government audience | that wants to believe there is a technological fix for their problems, | or what? It all sounds good at the level of discussion in the presentations I saw. Whether it actually saves time or money at an industrial scale is still an open question, I think. At least, no one has shown me proof that it does. | There was less about web services / SOA on the program this year. Is | the world just quietly using these technologies, sick of hearing the | hype, or what? No clue. Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <ndw@n...> | Optimistic, even in the face of reality. http://nwalsh.com/ |
