Felt I had to share this :-)

The Right Way to do Ajax is Declaratively

"We need the 'Declarative' meme to consolidate and create a movement out  
of all this, otherwise apparently disparate, work. Once we have a meme to  
gather around, we gain collaborative and cognitive power from its mere  
existence. This could work in the same way that the label 'Ajax' itself  
consolidated (and launched into orbit) techniques that a large number of  
us had already been doing for months or years."


(I also liked: "it looks to me like XHTML2 has taken a perfect trajectory  
between backwards-compatible concepts, semantics and syntax and abstract  
idealism. XHTML2 appears to cleanly fix all the outstanding problems with  
HTML once and for all.
Now, part of XHTML2 is XForms. XForms does the same cleaning up job on  
HTML forms that XHTML2 does on HTML.")
