Les Orchard says each API is a snowflake that every developer has to build custom interfaces for. Someday all these guys will realize they need to get together and come up with some standards for serializing data to simplify the work for themselves and developers. A lot of compromise and working together will be needed to make this happen. And when they have finished, many years from now, they will be where we were with XML-RPC in 1998. :-( Permalink to this paragraph

Brent Simmons writes a tutorial that I can use. It's really nice to see Brent caring about Frontier! After sorting out the mess on Friday, I have a new sense of what's possible with Frontier. Not saying that has anything to do with Brent's piece, but there may be some kind of wave of karma flowing around Frontier that wasn't flowing before. Or it could just be my imagination. Permalink to this paragraph
