What Mr. Rumsey might want to realize is that the product which he
mentioned is only one of many that are due to change the static
nature of the web into a rather effective, dynamically driven
information construction toolkit. The computer platform which I use
will be delivering such capability in the first quarter of next year,
it is based on "object-oriented" computer programming and promises a
kit for dynamic web server construction that should be killer. But
I'm not going to bore this list with hyperbole.
Let's face it, the Web is a baby. It seems to be the information
access paradigm that has kicked the doors down. Now all we have to do
is help it evolve and allow it to become useful. But as Andrzej says,
let's knock off the useless crowing and continue to be informed about
the technology innovations as they evolve. Generally, those are
standardized methods, not individual products.
Three cheers for open-standards. Three boos for proprietary
