perspectives on open-source and web services

open source WS standards implementations

see, this is the kind of stuff that gets me VERY excited. I had heard that Apache was being given the reins of some web services standards, and that OASIS was going to play peace-maker in getting Microsoft and Apache to the same table to work out issues with the licenses on those standards that Microsoft had penned.

I love the way this article described standards development and open-source development:

"from the frying pan of standards adoption into the fire of open source implementation"

I'm hoping that this becomes a tried-and-true pattern for web service standards - major work in designing solid standards, and then handed over for open-source implementation. although I confess I don't really have any experience with the standards in question, nor have I even worked with Apache's other web service standards implementations. but I think I know enough about how Apache operates, and have enough excitement for web services to be "high" on the prospect of getting all kinds of open-source tools to integrate things.

but the dynamics of this kind of progress seem to have all the right components.
