W3C helping (?)to standardise AJAX
The W3C is going to try and help standardise AJAX, see The XMLHttpRequest Object, W3C Working Draft 05 April 2006 I really hope that it'll work, and with Anne van Kesteren doing the groundwork I feel almost confident, but as with other W3C or in general, commitee driven developement, we'll have to wait and see. update: I just noticed MSFT is not in the authors section yet, that wont help. Did you know they *invented* the damned thing in the first place?

Java licensing issues part 937
I have to agree with this post on nearly all accounts, apart from the LAMP stack one. With frameworks as RIFE and other ones that are attempting to simplify Java, it might have happened if they were around back when PHP was moving in for the P in LAMP, but Java back then was just too inaccesible for the public that PHP attracted. The other arguments are pretty good imho, especially the one about people choosing Java over Javascript if that had been possible, and the one about Mono... If Java had been opener, I'm pretty sure folks would have chosen Java over Mono to do developement, maybe extending Java with some of the features that mono/.net folks say make that a better choice.

Great Javascripting
Now, why aren't more people using this great javascript? I mean, buttons that *resize* depending on how long the *scrolling* text is, it is so 1996 that it must be the in thing today!

Agile web development
This article makes a good point of skipping the whole paperwork step when trying to work out the website-to-be with a customer. I wholeheartedly agree with it, and with a framework that allows one to rapidly develop the core functionality, why not adapt this method.
