RE: A real community service

I had a look at the XML Edge site. The irony of seeing a chapeau-ed Tim
Bray -- twice mind you -- emblazoned on the page, in light of his post, was
one of the best moments of my day. (The other fine moment was due to Len
Bullard's diversity snippet.) Thank you, gentlemen, for keeping this list
fun, whether you intend to or not!

> ...... when will this conference madness end?

Having spent a few summers in my youth bucking hay, I remember it always
going better when the sun was shining. I suspect XML "conference madness"
will not end until it starts to rain. Didn't James Clark mean to say
Excellent Marketing Language?
