Listen To Don. That Don Box, he‰¥ús a smart guy. I‰¥úm glad to hear I‰¥úm not the only one worrying that the profoundly-good Web-Services idea is danger of being discredited by too much theory and not enough practice. [ongoing]
there is never too much theory and not enough practice, theory is a practice. if you want something built, then build it, but to claim that others should build things and stop thinking about building things is a form of fascism identified by bataille and likely others. it is anti-intellectualism too. so lets be careful out there and let people do what they want like a free open community of developers should.
