I have learned a lot from Tim Bray but this is just so weak and lame::
S for Simple
I feel guilty sometimes about the lull in my WS-Rants, because the forces of WS-Complexity and WS-Darkness are out there evangelizing tirelessly.
S also stands for "Security" please wake me up when the REST people actually put security mechanisms in their stuff. Then we'll see how much simpler it is. Until then this is strictly amateur hour. "Look Ma, I can throw a bunch of random unauthenticatable, unauthorizable bits across the wire! Soooo much simpler than worrying about security. You should be proud! Oh wait, was that your bank account information I just posted? Dang."
C'mon Tim, you are better than this. I am all for bashing bloatware or whatever, but let's compare apples to apples. TIA.
Is it really that hard to have Web 2.0 and security, too?
