   RE: [xml-dev] Sky is falling again...

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

C'est vrai, but that's life with bosses.  They 
become entangled in the day to day befuddlements 
of entranced employees and lose their technical 
edge. Yet like most mammal brains, repeat any 
message often enough and with similar contents, 
and they will accept it as fact.  That's the 
way the web was won.

The boss takes two of his most trusted allies 
who can program and sets them to building a 
small system.  Then he wants them to be the 
gurus for everyone else.  Anyone care to hazzard 
a guess on how well that works?

Why does everyone want a new syntax?

I have no boss so I can't be sure, but what I'd suggest looking for a
new job since, obviously, your boss is hipe driven and doesn't
understand what XML is about :-) ...

BTW, have you noticed that yet another XML spec is defining a non XML


Rendez-vous a Paris (Forum XML).
