Ms Maler · Hey, <a href='http://www.xmlgrrl.com/blog/'>Eve’s here</a>! I expect great things. What she doesn’t highlight in her basic bio is that she helped invent XML, and has great hair, and is funny. Oh, and dig her URL. Now she’s a WordPress geek too; seems to be a growing tribe.
 
UBL by the Numbers · Via Jon Bosak, a pointer to <a href='http://www.xmlconference.org/xmlusa/2004/slides/brun&nielsen/Handling%201200%20Goverment%20Forms%20in%20XML%20Schema.ppt'>this XML 2004 presentation</a> (PowerPoint, sigh), about the Danish Government’s deployment of a bunch of XML technologies including UBL. Check out slides 4 & 5: they estimate the annual savings achievable from invoicing in UBL at somewhere between €100M and €160M. I may be out of step with the crowd but it seems <a href='/ongoing/When/200x/2004/05/14/UBL10'>painfully obvious</a> to me that UBL is going to be huge and I don’t understand why more technology vendors (including my employer) aren’t refocusing their e-business strategy around it.
