I was named Co-Chair for the Developer's Day "Distributed Computing on the
Web" track at WWW9 in Amsterdam next May. My fellow chair is Annrai O'Toole
of Iona, an expert on CORBA. I guess XML-RPC is being acknowledged. Thanks!
We're in the Call for Participation stage, which means that if you have
work related to Distributed Computing on the Web that you would like to
present to developers at WWW9, now is the time to start thinking and get
ready to answer the call soon. I'm a newbie at chairing for a technical
conference, but I'm looking forward to the experience, and creating an
informative and productive experience for the people attending and speaking
at WWW9 on this subject.
Another announcement, we've started a web-based discussion group at
XML-RPC.COM. This request came from a few people, the rollover rate at
discuss.userland.com is high enough that the XML-RPC messages were getting
lost. Now we'll have a place to present new ideas that's just for XML-RPC.
We plan to post some specs for a couple of protocols in the next few weeks,
one to enable a "network computing" model for desktop text editing tools
(ie WPs, outliners, spreadsheets, etc.) and another for a distributed user
preferences system. It makes sense that XML-RPC become its own interactive
venue, so now we've made that possible:
