  • Mmm, SOAPy
    Lots of interesting chatter about SOAP, XML, APIs, and Web Services right now: Google’s Gaffe (this article asks if Google’s API is overly complicated by SOAP) SOAP Wars (the converse take) The always interesting Shirky with another take on Web Services/APIs SOAP vs. REST (Representational State Transfer) REST and Web Services Some interesting reading.
