Re: [xml-dev] XML's greatest cultural advantage over JSON

This reminds me of another fun point.

The "first generation" of folks who turned to JSON had generally been 
using XML before.  Some of them were using it for interchange across 
distant systems, while others were using it in more tightly bound 
situations.  (The "X" in Ajax used to be "XML", before pretty much that 
entire community dropped XML in the wastebasket.)

XML had a chance with an open-minded crowd of people eager to embrace 
it.  By and large, we utterly failed to convince them.  Once other 
options emerged, they ran there.

Why do you think the next generation would march the opposite direction 
when the XML story hasn't changed?

If you want to draw folks back to XML, the story around XML has to change.
