On this day six years ago, UserLand explained why we were so excited about XML. Seems like a long time ago, but the reason hasn't changed. It's all about interop. Not elegance, not boiling the ocean, not making geeks happy. XML exists, imho, to give more choices to users.
Like Lance Knobel, I've been watching and listening to coverage about Haiti from the major networks and NPR, trying to figure out what happened, and almost no one is even trying to say. It's like the Meet The Press episode with the governor of California promoting two ballot propositions but never saying what they do, and not being asked. On Sunday I thought I heard US Secretary of State Colin Powell say that Aristide's crime was that he didn't appear to be supporting democracy (looking for the quote). All the talk about Haiti having a Constitution, when it comes time for a change in power, they do it the usual Latin American way.
A Jamaican columnist provides another point of view on the events in Haiti. It was written before Aristide left.
