Alt-I-Lab Results: Mind the Gap...

Wilbert Kraan, CETIS, Jul 30, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Wilbert Kraan summarizes the recent Alt-I-Lab meetings in San Francisco. The gap is "between user expectation of interoperability and reality." From where I stand, what's happening here can be summed up with this sentence: "The final concern raised last year - just build stuff - stop making new specs - doesn't appear to have had much traction." Basically, the report describes a bunch of beginnings... but that's it. We still don't have a working system. Sure, we have a "A Service Oriented Approach is emerging amongst a variety of vendors and groups, to the point that implementations are already underway" - but my question is, how is that going to help us? Oh - and if you want to join the mysterious Redwood Group alluded to in the article - it's here. Don't know why Wilbert didn't run with a link.
