WebDAV seems so web 2.0, but somehow the buzz has passed it by.
“The WebDAV protocol’s aim is to make the World Wide Web a readable and writable medium”
Isn’t that part of the Web 2.0 anthem? Well, depending on who you talk to.
Maybe it’s too mature? Too ubiquitous? Lacks a catchy acronym?
I thought it was cool that Office supports WebDAV, but then learned:
“In Windows XP, everything in the OS can publish to a WebDAV enabled web server. … In XP, you can map a drive to a web server so that when you save a file to drive X:, for example, it is published directly to a web server.
You can also select file, open and type http://servername/folder as a pathname just as you can a drive letter or UNC pathname.”
I mean, geez. It’s like ajax before people knew it was ajax.
Or maybe I’m the only one so excited about internet-enabled client software? Break me outta this browser, baby!
