Let 'em believe what they want to believe. A network
that still doesn't get PUBLIC IDs or why adding a lot
of little DLLs to the client turns it back into a fat
client isn't ready to understand local autonomy and
the reliability of local rules over global mandates.
Hey just a little more Prolog...
To the IT manager who thinks they can better manage
client configurations by keeping all the code on a
central server, or the CEO who thinks they can get
more productivity out of employees by making sure they
can't get RealPlayerZed, this all looks like good magic.
To the user who has seen enough 404s or watched a
brownout, to the California utilities who can't
afford the server farms they have now, to the local
agency who refuses to handle more information than
they need because the UN tells them they should...
this all looks like deep caca.
People who tell you a web browser is a perfect
next generation client need to write a few
industrial sized database applications so
they can discover the joys of persistent state
and client side business rules.
Next, Up, Back, History, Go To, don't solve all of the
context problems of complex navigation. :-)
