It's part of the Worse Is Better meme. And
Dave got it right: weaker UDDI can be found
at www.google.com As noted in other threads,
ya gets what ya pays for. I'd sure hate to
fly on airliners built to Shirky's philosophy,
and I'd hate to have to depend on the opinions
of competitors about a vendor.
The bit that other's opinions of something are
more important than the vendor's statements
is not only dumb, but flies directly in the
face of how contracting actually works. I
can consult the newspaper or even the Better
Business Bureau and get opinions, but when it
comes time to sign on the dotted line, I
want the documents from the participating
parties. UDDI may not be the best player,
but it does have the quality that what one
asserts one must back up. Using Google,
anyone can say anything about anyone or
anything and that is far too easy to game.
The RESTafarians are taking a bridge too far.

More cryptic than usual today, Len. I'm missing the connection
with RSS. Or maybe that's the point somehow?
