I was going to try blogging Tim Bray's keynote at the SDForum Web Services Conference, but it's easier to summarize with the title of this post. Amid all the discussion of WS-* standards, Tim takes the other point of view, saying that Amazon, eBay, Google, Yahoo, and others are doing it the right way. "The stuff that works on the Internet today will work on the Intranet tomorrow" is his argument.
I couldn't agree more.
In related news, I got to see Steve Gilmor's Tablet PC. So I decided to shoot a picture of it--you know, just for Scoble's benefit.

This is /so/ true. And, couldn't you at least have gotten a better pic?
Heh. Well, I was just shootting quick pics. Check my Flickr stream for a few others.
Amazon, Google and Yahoo, yes. But Ebay's APIs are pretty inaccessible and trending towards the SOAP and WS-* mess.
