In Raj’s usually useful, never dull, trawl of the web thingy, look what he’s found!! A card to drive those vector graphics monitors you undoubtadly have sitting in the shed.

One Document to Bind Them: Combining XML, Web Services, and the Semantic Web

One Document to Bind Them: Combining XML, Web Services, and the Semantic Web

What a very thought provoking article. I’m not sure I fully agree with what they say, but if this did come to pass, it would be prety exciting. It seems to miss the fact that comercial interests prefer lock in, rather than mutual sharing.
Nonetheless very interesting.

4th July

I’ve always got confused by 4th of July and Thanksgiving… Now I know how to remember which is which. One is the “The day the bunch of religious lunatics that had been thrown out of England landed” and the other is the day we English should really celebrate for losing the Americans….!

Ok tongue in cheek. A very merry 4th of July to all Americans out there (minus the fuckwit in charge of course, and all those money grabbing exploiting bastards in Iraq).
