Re: [xml-dev] Topics of keen interest to me ... how about you?

What limits programmers from decent UI development is not the technology.  Excuses, sure, much like the notion of ‘data driven’.

An observation: it turns out people will pay a premium for "good" UI, look at how well iPhone has done.

In the areas of business I deal with I see an urgent need for more sophisticated user interfaces for various functions. Eg. why can't we have something as simple as Google Docs for XML? Folksonomy tagging, hide complexity from user, etc. etc. Ease of use has a high intrinsic value.
