Re: [xml-dev] XML has enabled the exponential progress of _______ (fill in the blank)

I tend to think of instructions per second, mega bytes of RAM, giga bytes of 
disk, and various modem technologies through out the ages being the real 
enablers.  Softies like me just tend to use what is available and I don't 
think we can claim to have done anything particularly enabling.

Subject: [xml-dev] XML has enabled the exponential progress of _______ (fill 
in the blank)

Hi Folks,

I recently read this:

   Now that health technology is an information technology
   and subject to the exponential progress that underlies
   all information technology ...

   The power of information technology doubles every year,
   within a decade these technologies will be a thousand
   times more powerful than they are today and a million
   times more powerful in 2 decades.


XML is an information technology. We are 11 years into XML.

So ....

XML has enabled (facilitated) a two-thousand-times increase in _______. 
(Please fill in the blank)

And for comparison:

JSON is an information technology. We are, say, 7 years into JSON.

So ....

JSON has enabled (facilitated) a hundred-times increase in _______. (Please 
fill in the blank)
