from a article: Multiple standards keep customers from taking the Web services plunge. 'multiple standards' sounds like an oxymoron to me? regardless, it takes common sense to figure out the standards mess. if it says Microsoft and IBM on the standard, then it is gold, bet your business on it. if it says Microsoft and others (without IBM), then look for a competing spec my IBM and others. if there is no competing spec then proceed forward with caution. if there is a competing spec, then wait. if you see a spec without Microsoft or IBM behind it, then throw it in the trash. also pissed that the Yahoo! Groups "WS-Discovery-Workshops" discussion group requires me to sign and fax a Workshop Feedback Agreement. hate that legal is involved and that it requires killing trees. the only WS-good news i have is Christian Weyer, John Bristowe and/or Interop Warriors have put together Plumbwork Orange. this will be used to test out WS-* implementations. needed since time between WSE drops has been substantial. don't know if i'll contribute to the workspace, but i'll definitely be using it to test interop with the CF bits. need to run the WS-Eventing stuff against it now
