I was recently doing another round of our popular SOA Forums across Europe which brought me to Warsaw, Poland as one of the stops. I had a chance to meet with journalist Tomasz Marcinek of ComputerWorld. It was a lively conversation which started out mostly debating his challenges on what is different about today’s concept of SOA vs what the world had already seen with CORBA, and then lead to talking about more relevant things such as loose coupling, getting started with SOA, and ESB. Tomasz has published the discussion as a Q&A - http://www.panmedia.pl/serwisy/2527-progress/2006-04/kat0107.pdf
