   RE: [xml-dev] Common Word Processing Format

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I mostly remember him looking alternately put-upon and amused, 
but overall, it was a productive discussion for me at least. 
I understood the bit about session state storage, and 
embedded docs, but the idea that the data was live got 
past me.  I think it important because it means this 
is not just word processing but wp with daily mgt 
built in.  So what is core is now a bit more complicated. 
But yeah, I think XHTML+ does most of that too.

So why exactly do I need OpenDoc or OpenOffice?  Live updates? 
Features I don't use?  Maybe I don't.  Maybe that market is 
shrinking fast but no one is noticing because we are 
conditioned to buy bigBoxesOfSoftware like we still buy 
CDs when we can get the singles because we want the box.

Blur?  I left $75 worth of insulin in the refrigerator. 
The Hilton politely mailed it to me this week.  Of course, 
hot insulin has exactly zero value, so had they called, 
I would have told them to throw it away.  Getting the 
free electric razor to replace the one they broke 
means I came out exactly even.  Not bad for a lack 
of planning...

Sitting here listening to the new Kate Bush album 
that I told myself I wouldn't because her stuff 
always makes me crazy for the first few weeks 
after I get it.  Buy this album if you trust Sony. 
So far, so good.  Liquid and surreal....

I vaguely recall Brian Jones talking about this at your townhall ... but XML

2005 is a bit of a blur in my memory already :-)
