Atom Publishing Protocol Interop! · Mark your cal­en­dar: April 16-17 at Google. Every­body is in­vit­ed, pro­vid­ed they bring along an APP im­ple­men­ta­tion, client or server. This was just an­nounced a cou­ple of days ago, and as I write this there are al­ready six thir­teen client and sev­en fif­teen serv­er im­ple­men­ta­tions signed up to be there and try to fill in the grid. Let’s drop some names, in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der: AOL, Flock, Google, IBM, Lo­tus, Mi­crosoft, NTT, Or­a­cle, O’Reilly, Six Apart, Sun, WordPress. Um, have I men­tioned that the APP is go­ing to be huge?

Loads of de­pen­den­cies on WS-standards, WS-drafts, WS-submissions, and oth­er WS-handwaving, check. Res­o­lute obliv­i­ous­ness to oth­er tech­nolo­gies that ad­dress the same prob­lem, check. [Up­date: Hos­til­i­ties break out in the com­ments. Read ’em and see what you think.] ...
