Roundup · Once again I’m drowning in little tech-news tidbits that I think the world needs to look at: hence a Friday linkfest: <i>Item:</i> John Cowan’s <a href='http://mercury.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/tagsoup/'>TagSoup</a> has reached 1.0. This is going to be an essential tool for so many people. <i>Item:</i> Assaf Arkin, in <a href='http://blog.labnotes.org/2006/06/16/why-blogs-work/'>Why Blogs Work</a>, explains it all. <i>Item:</i> Kimbro Staken provides <a href='http://www.xmldatabases.org/WK/blog/2287_10_things_to_change_in_your_thinking_when_building_REST_XML_Protocols.item'>10 things to change in your thinking when building REST XML Protocols</a>. <i>Item:</i> InfoQ <a href='http://www.infoq.com/news/InfoQ-Launched'>has launched</a>; does the world need another software-news site?

XML 2006 - Get Yer Papers In · Yow, just realized that the XML 2006 call for papers is upon us; for details see <a href='http://www.megginson.com/blogs/quoderat/archives/2006/06/15/xml-2006-submissions-due-monday-19-june/'>David Megginson</a>, who’s the chair. Hanging with the XML tribe is always good fun, and I expect David to do a great job of running the shindig; so send him your good ideas.
