Ok, that last one was a cheap potshot at Annrai’s latest, but the article offers some interesting wisdom, this bit in particular;

The Wiki metaphor (and its implementation) is the perfect vehicle for sharing and managing SOA artifacts across an organization. Then if anyone makes a change to a service that you are interested in, RSS should be able to inform you when that happens and you can make any necessary changes.

It sounds like he’s describing more of a management interface, but hey, it’s a start. It’s a short step from there to realizing that all services can spit out RSS notifications upon a change of state, not just ones monitoring other services.

“On the outward-facing side are all the informal, loosely-coupled aspects of a service – its self-describing nature, its natural integration with Internet technologies, its high level description of business services”. Wow, that’s so so wrong.
