RE: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions

Oh.  Right.  You work for the government.  You only buy serious games.

Spent any time looking at how the security training for the upcoming
Olympics in Britain is being conducted?


From: Stephen Green [mailto:stephen.green@bristol.gov.uk] 

I really like this assessment of the nature of the web as 'largely
boring'. I reckon this to be one of the strengths of it nowadays.

The business user of the Internet can feel assured of getting paid
when the work is hum-drum because the business is separate from
the pleasure. Upper management though can get the pleasurable
bits like 3XD in their reports so that is more like the leisure use of
the Internet (executive toys). So to do it as a job, keep it boring
(maybe even showing the 'tags' now and then), but to sell it to the
leisure market use video, games and clever graphics: Not always
the rule of course but it seems to apply where business documents
are concerned. Too much pleasure and it becomes the domain of
pleasure-seekers and executives. Too little and they pay you to do
it for them. :-)

All the best

Stephen Green
