Re: [xml-dev] Designing an experiment to gather evidence onapproaches to designing web services

Tangentially, what is very interesting is the way that the discussion is being conducted in IT terms - traceability and testing rather than in terms of hypotheses and mental models.

Sadly, its discussions like this that have moved this mailing list to near the bottom of my reading priorities.  Astronomy is a special case with lower quality evidence?  Sigh.  Eventually someone will mention Popper (there ought to be a subtype of Godwin's law for that) and it will be all over... Kuhn seems to be less attractive to IT types and Feuerabend, although a good match for the way that IT works just offends people (the parallels between his New Guinean witch doctors and much that passes for the received wisdom in IT for example).
