Bill de hÓra's "Predictions for 2003"

Bill de hÓra makes some interesting technical Predictions for 2003

The ones about Web Services and XML strike a particular cord with me, and especially these:

  • Versioning becomes the other hardest problem in webservices, along with security.
  • W3C Schema is subsetted.
  • Ant and RSS become far and away the most popular XML languages.
Only time will tell.

Let me give a thumbs-up on that third prediction, at least as it applies to RSS. News syndication has changed how I consume Internet content. Using a news aggregator like FeedReader, most of the time I don't even visit Weblogs at all. If I do visit a site, I'm far likelier to revisit it if it's got an RSS feed to reference. Of course, it's all kind of like going back to the good old days of Usenet groups. Mind you, I'm still a regular over at alt.sports.hockey.nhl.vanc-canucks. Cheers. DB.
