True.  It's like Borscht Belt comedy:  something or 
someone has to be dead, dieing, or about to be caught 
doing one or the other with someone else's data.

The best humor this week will be on the TAG list as 
forces attempt to determine the difference between 
'resources' and 'information resources' without 
using the S word or its insidious cousin, Type.

Pain is funny.  No one quite knows why.  If we 
wait long enough, Clay Shirky will prove there is 
a power law relationship that ensures only the 
first three and half comics will get 94.8% of the 
laughs even though they copied the lines from a 
less successful comic.


XML Doesn't Care.  Namespaces make it care. The 
Use of Force requires a policy.

Yes, the headline's a lot worse than the article. If you actually 
read the article, they basically say things are going just fine, but 
I guess the headline "XML continues to succeed"  wouldn't drive page 
views. :-)
