XML 2003 Reflections

Xml 2003 Reflections - Adam Bosworth Keynote

Adam Bosworth of BEA delivered the opening keynote address on Wednesday. He started by reminding us of the dream that XML geeks shared back in 1998: Information should not get lost in presentation. Actual XML practice has to some extent diverged into two separate streams -- documents on one hand, and application data on the other -- but together they have helped take back the world from the "hideous complexity and fragility" of information presented in .DOC, .EXE, etc. files.

Web Services too complicated?? YES! Remember, I can still buy a book on Amazon with just HTML and cookies. Why the trend for complication?
