Re: [xml-dev] XML As Fall Guy


- The website has ben described on the press as a "system of systems".
 Thats sorta like "urban planning". You can't decide how every block
is build, but you can decide how they are interconnected. XML is the
best way to interconnect different system currently. Dunno about
storage and retrieval and small-processing, maybe too?.  Sometimes you
need the solution AND how you use it.

- The higher you move, the more "political" are the decisions.
Choosing one technology over others is political.  Some would say
choosing MariaDB over Microsoft SQL Server is highly charged political

- Sometimes people on the bottom make these political decisions,
because people high up don't even know then to exist.  Sometimes
people on the top make these decisions, completely ignoring what wars
his people are fighting. Do Tsun Tsu ever commented anything about
this?, how to lead people on technical decisions, really lead/inspire
not just govern on them.

Maybe you can have zero crimes in a block, its hard to have zero
crimes in a whole city.. and the means to do so will make living in it
painful. So the city must be designed to have crime in it, and to
fight it. A system of systems must tolerate and live with error and
have systems to deal with it, not try to be very complex....
complexity will just kill the system the other way.
