   Why One Degree of Separation Matters

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Thanks to Elliotte for putting that on the recent 
reading list.

Yet Another Reason Google ain't such a great way 
to get to the business you need and why one degree 
of separation may be all that business wants. 

It isn't that REST doesn't work.  It may be too 
many things to too many applications and unfortunately, 
opportunism outs laissez-faire techniques.  So to 
use REST, don't we have to build in systems to 
stop what Netscape/AOL is doing even if they are 
doing it for what they consider legitimate reasons?

It isn't about being trusting.  It is about good 
judgement over who to trust, when, and for how 
long.  "Two can keep a secret if one is dead" 
as the boys told us.   I have no doubt that 
what Netscape did here can be done for SOAP 
web service calls.  What guarantees and warranties 
have to be in a web service contract to insure 
remediation if this kind of one-degree-of-separation 
business conops falls apart?
