   RE: [xml-dev] Out of topic or out of interest?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I disagree, XML technologies aren't done by a long shot. If you believe
otherwise, then I need a sip of some of the Kool Aid you are drinking. 

The people on this list are primarily technical people, arguing about
philosophy and business cases is typically outside our depth and usually
cannot affect any change. On the other hand, the discussions about
technology we have here can directly impact these technologies. 

I know which one I'd rather spend my time doing, how about you? 

When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
