   overrun with bohemians?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Maybe most of the gentry and royalty have left the list - talk of
revolution and guillotines probably doesn't help - but xml-dev seems to
have gone over pretty thoroughly to the position Uche described as

There are certainly document folks around, but there are also lots of
people who work with data and even think in terms of data, but who value
XML's labeled but untyped textual foundations.

It makes me feel more optimistic than I have in a while, though I also
worry that this is simply a place where bohemians congregate.  

Where do we go from here?
