    If you are looking to ride that wave, XML is surf board of
    choice. Oh, my. That was awful.

    At the core of Web 2.0 are permalinks, hyper-linking, and
    syndication. Really, permalinks, are the core of the revolution,
    it was hard to get anything done when people kept moving and
    deleting data.

    I think that as the dust starts to settle, XSLT is going to
    become an important player in these applications. 

    My 2 cents. Thanks for the reading.
