Re: [xml-dev] [OT] Re: [xml-dev] Lessons learned from the XML experiment

concrete wall. What a choice.
You see what you want to see. Your nodes are my tangle. Your concrete wall is my freedom to innovate.

I don't mind people talking about nodes - I do use them myself - but when people insist on nodes as the one true primary view, as you appear to be doing, I question the value of the conversation.

If that's "backwards and downwards", fine. I'm not sure why you've chosen to stand on the ceiling. I expect that eventually you'll fall off.
