   RE: [xml-dev] ANN: Namespace Routing Language

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'll forward those cliches to the Toyota engine 
plant about a mile from my house where I live 
in North Alabama and then on to the Mercedes 
plant 200 miles further South of that one.  Most 
of our German rocket scientists still standing 
will also get a big hoot out of it.

Don't know where this started, but NIH syndrome 
in this part of the world died with the Ford 
Fiestas and K cars.  We gladly accept ideas 
from anywhere that make for jobs. "Ain't too 
proud to beg, sweet darling".

Where is Australia?  Oceania except when the 
Australian newspapers claim they are not.

What amuses me is how much this all breaks the cliche that
Asians are only good at taking Western ideas and making them
into concrete technologies: with both RELAX and RELAX
Namespaces we have an Asian's ideas being implemented by
a Westerner. Japan and other Asian countries are now crammed
full of XML expertise and overflowing with creativity: can the
West's regional NIH syndrome be overcome?

Rick, does an Australian count as a "Westerner"?   If not, what is the best
term, since it surely could not be "Asian"?
