RE: [xml-dev] Victory has been declared in the schema wars ...

Wow.  As long as we are into the gloom thing, let's hear what the
professionals have to say about despair.  The wisdom of crowds is never
wrong.  Who am I to disagree?

Haikus anyone?




No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember,
you've probably only seen the tip of them.

If you're not a part of the solution, there's good money to be made in
prolonging the problem.

Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to
make any progress.

No single raindrop believes it is to blame for the flood.

The race for quality has no finish line- so technically, it's more like a
death march.

As long as we have each other, we'll never run out of problems.

When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.

Quitters never win, winners never quit, but those who never win AND never
quit are idiots.

Just because you're necessary doesn't mean you're important

A company that will go to the ends of the Earth for its people will find it
can hire them for about 10% of the cost of Americans.

If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you
probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.

Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99% perspiration, which is why engineers
sometimes smell really bad.

Until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, you will not know the
terror of being forever lost at sea

Maybe a better analogy would be that the people who say that XSD is 
lovely is Mr Bush's "Mission Accomplished!"

Though of course there are differences between Iraq and XSD. One seems 
to be about people with their own  fiefdom agendas stubbornly miring us 
in a quagmire, using a grabbag of thin reasons to justify it, denying 
any evidence that things are not rosy, perpetually promising that things 
are turning around, and enmeshing all sorts of decent people in a life 
of horror, difficulty and with no confidence in accomplishing the 
mission. The other is in the Middle East.
