   RE: [xml-dev] best practice for providing newsfeeds ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Right.  They don't know about namespaces and don't 
care this season.  Over time as IP and conformance 
to cited standards becomes more important, they will.

So the namespace is just the implementation means. 
The coupler is the features as expressed in the 
extensions (as denoted by the namespace), and that 
is life as normal among competing providers of 
specification-based products.  As I thought, 
technology push vs customer pull.  The fun 
is that for some technologies, as you note, 
the technologists are the customers.  Note that 
the namespacesAreEvil thread is stable; no matter 
how perturbed, it returns to the same predictable 
points on the topic map.

It would be fun to have a technology that extracted 
such topic points from perma-threads, mapped them, 
then visualized them such that one could see if 
they are stable, non-linear chaotic, and what if 
any strange attractors emerge, then what the nature 
of these are.

If your customers are XML geeks I'd expect not. If your customers are
reqular people who just want software to work then they are just an
implementation detail.
