More than just HTTP-as-cockroach
by Rael Dornfest
Peter Drayton's thoughtful writeup of Don Box's DevWeek keynote. "One of the most interesting talks this week was Don Box's keynote on Tuesday, where among other things he declared that "HTTP is the cockroach of Internet protocols" :-). Although this comment and others were widely reported in the trade press, the keynote actually covered much more, and was very interesting and insightful."
Don Box is speaking at the sellsbrothers.com Web Services DevCon, March 21-22, 2002 in Beaverton, OR and tutoring at The O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, May 13-16, 2002 in Santa Clara, CA. I look forward to attending both events.
