/**/ I had a fascinating experience in Rajkot (map). I was flown to Ahmedabad and then driven to Rajkot where I arrived at 2.00am. I was really surprised that my hosts were still waiting to welcome me. Even Tyag Swamiji was there to welcome me (a spiritual leader and gold …
Comments on WS-Eventing from the feedback workshop by Werner Vogels.
That’s a blog to watch!!! Eric Newcomer is blogging (subscribed of course).

The …
I am having an excellent time in India. The people here are very nice. I’ve been invited to give a guest lecture in Gujarat (I hope I got it right). The Indo-UK e-Science Workshop is finishing tomorrow so I will have some time to do some site-seeing.

Werner Vogels talks about the three specifications available today that provide notification-related functionality (his post).
Few comments by Eric Newcomer in the Web Services Architecture (ex-)working group mailing list regarding the REST vs Web Services discussion that is going on over there. Also, Mark Baker replies to my previous post with some interesting arguments. I need to think about them. I agree with Eric that …
