Re: [xml-dev] Engineering versus Science, Anecdote versus Evidence... [Was: Designing an experiment to gather evidence on approaches todesigning web services]


I'm also a composer, John.  The hardest art is to compose well enough  
that the piece can be performed by some n of quality of performer and  
will want to be performed by some n of quality of performer and after  
being heard by that performer, some n of quality of audience will  
inquire about the composer instead of only crediting the performer.

There's a lot of luck to navigating n space.
