I concur

Just a quick return from the dead to point out Dare Obasanjo’s fantastic read – Learning from our Mistakes: the Failure of OpenID, AtomPub and XML on the Web. An insightful article that ring true to me through personal experience in each domain. Mind you, I still utilize all three technologies in useful scenarios every day and find them all to be elegant solutions to my specific problem domains, but I wholeheartedly agree with Dare’s conclusions. Enough blather, go read.

Coming soon: a long-delayed series on jQuery, jqGrid, AJAX, DWR and JSON. Enjoy LS11 and the warm weather in Orlando, yellow-bleeders!
