   Time to move on...

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I've been reflecting on XML, and a lot of the work I've done over the 
last 7 years or so, especially with regards standards etc.

I've come to realize that we're debating the same things we were in 
1994/1995, and that while some things are better, there are still big 

I've also come to realize that most of the efforts now are on things I 
personally don't think are of much long-term significance, and things 
different from those that motivated me to participate in the 
development of  the WWW (HTML/HTTP/XML/XSL/XLink/DOM/etc.) in the 
first place. The really big things are already done.... until next 
time around.

In the big scheme of things, I feel most of the points of discussion 
on xml-dev this year have been pretty much totally irrelevant.... 
mostly brownian motion among molecules of a much larger creature that 
has a mind of it's own.

It's time for me to stop wasting time in brownian motion, so... 
goodbye and thanks for all the quips ;-)
