That's a very good and concise presentation in Jim Webber's
article. Since he credits Mark Baker, I assume he had some
incisive input on the matter.
I'd give a lot to know Russert's opinion, but like a very
large section of the population, I've pretty much decided
how I will vote and my blog makes that clear. I'm not a

impressions of the candidates!).
In any event, Jim Webber has an excellent piece on the *other*
interesting topic of the day, Web Services vs REST. Hope you find it
