this from Dave Orchard;
If there’s a core concept to examine in REST description languages wrt WSDL, it’s whether WSDL’s aggregation of operations into interfaces and then binding to http makes sense.
As my grade two teacher used to say, “No sh*t, Sherlock”! 8-)
Actually, she didn’t say that, but wouldn’t it be funny if she did?
Pina has a couple of Bosworth’s slides that you might find interesting
“[…]SOAP, XML-RPC and REST (although they didn’t name XML-RPC, I think it’s more widely deployed than the other two)” Almost, Dave. You’re just off by an order of magnitude of orders of magnitude.

that a poor-story-telling tech-head like myself can’t really compete with.

too; I was concerned with the 90 minute duration, but we could have gone another
The audience feedback was incredible. The first woman up had this
huge grin on her face saying “Thank you for that breath of
fresh air!”; she had no question, but just wanted to share the love I
guess. 8-) But when the only backlash you get from audience comes from
I think you’re doing ok. 8-) (hugs, Hugo! 8-)
It’s too bad all the WS-* proponents originally scheduled to
participate had to cancel, as their participation would have added
an extra degree of credibility. But I think the large amount of
