REST Questions

Tim Bray, Weblog, Aug 18, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The discussion over how web sites should talk to each other continues. Tim Bray launches a set of counter-arguments, generally of the form: "Just because UDDI never took off, you can't conclude that service registries are dumb." But I would take each of his points and inverse them: UDDI never took off because service registries are dumb. Tim Bray asks questions of the form "Is x good enough?" I prefer to ask, "What can we do with x?" Because I don't think we should be engineering our solutions into our technology, I think we should be using technology to engineer solutions. These really are two different ways of looking at the world.
