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

Good to know it has a venerable history.  Like 
many obvious bits, it is useful to reiterate 
particularly where investment is thin on the 
ground and innovation is proportionally more 

The couplings can reverse ends as one 
drills down into different dimensions.  Again, 
an interesting pattern.

I believe the phrase has been around for awhile/forever. About the third 
entry in a google search for "technology push" is a 1988 paper. I'm 
thinking this is something young marketeers learn while they're chugging 
their Bosco. ;-}
