How odd. 60% more! Might be true if we’re talking gas prices or house foreclosures. Not if you’re reading a 2nd hand account of a medical research in your everyday newspaper. Journalists don’t do statistics. Shocking I know.
Citation needed. Patrick Mueller:
Here’s my thought on the lack of adoption of REST: it’s complicated for anything but the GETs. Namely, the mutating verbs POST, PUT, and DELETE. Not technically, but semantically. Check the rest-discuss mailing list sometime.
I did. Patrick is right.
Sharing is caring. Discipline and punish must be having a good day: “While I was away the REST vs WS-* war apparently ended.”
But the quote I wanted to reference, feels much like the work I’m doing now:
What’s replaced the services worldview, on the web at least, is a sharing worldview in which actors are encouraged to share as much information and behavior as possible while entertaining as few preconceptions and prejudices as possible about what’s going on at the other end. This is in direct contrast to the service model where messages are restricted to include only ‘essential’ information (mostly parameter name and type) and the more constraints that can be imposed on the other end the better.
Public sources exposed! In shocking news, PepsiCo reveals that the mountains depicted on Aquafina bottles have nothing to do with their source. Let me act surprised for a second. Really? Are you sure? Do you know that for a fact? But it’s PepsiCo, a brand we trust to provide high quality products in liquid form!
Some reporters went so far as to call Aquafina, and I quote, “tap water”. This being a blog, I decided to actually do some fact checking and consult my sources. So I went around the house drinking water from every available tap. First, the Brita. Fresh tasting, delicately smooth, highly recommend. Next, the faucet. The Dr. says I will be fine by Monday.
Clearly, tap water does not come from Aquafina bottles. I can only conclude this is a feeble PR attempt by the Tap Water Coalition to ride the coattails of a more successful brand.
