Any attention is good

[ #1167 ]

Just cruised over to and Clay Shirky has an article about why Web Services will fail to set the world on fire. His main point seems to be that WWW succeeded because the information transmitted was human consumable. Web Services are being touted by some as a way for programs to browse for components. I'm also dubious of this. I've never been sold on UDDI (although I'm looking harder at WSDL). But none of this is why I'm writing this journal.

On page 2 of Shirky's article, which is lambasting the hype around Web Services, is an ad for my book. I expect to see a huge jump in sales with that kind of pep talk!
