Check out this piece of crap that should never have made it past the desk of a responsible editor. So much for the arguments that having an editorial gatekeeper will shield the witless masses from being subjected to unqualified, sanctimonious opinions.
I can let go of the fact that this guy doesn’t understand what Web 2.0 is all about, lots of people are in that boat. But why would a news organization allow someone so totally clueless about distributed objects and their relationship to the broad network get their blessing by publishing this? Didn’t he ever hear about what happened to RMI, CORBA, .net remoting and a slew of other approaches? Has he ever heard of SOA? What works, what doesn’t and why?
