Let's be honest: most of us do technology work because we think it's cool,
and most of us are lucky enough to get jobs where we can get paid for
playing with the cool stuff.
But as far as XML getting boring: as others have said, the boringer it
gets, the more successful it's becoming. It should disappear into the
ductwork, it should become the tunnels under the city, as CMSMcQ said at
the SGML/XML '97 keynote. Or as (I think) Tim Bray likes to say, how many
people attend ASCII conferences? That's where XML should be going.
