… Uhh, since when were they in competition with one another?
As a 10 year XML veteran, and informal minister of propaganda for the “XML Team”, aren’t I supposed to leap to XML’s defense? I just can’t summon the energy.
And I can’t blame you, Mike! Why waste the energy of defending XML when theres nothing to defend!?
Quick show of hands from those who subscribe to a JSON Web Feed?
Okay, how about an XML Web Feed?
Okay, now lets try how many of you find that if you don’t want and/or need any of the extra stuff that working with the XML source provides, JSON is a really nice way to serialize XML data (e.g. a Web Feed), or any other source of data/data format for that matter, such that you can be more productive with less code inside of your web apps?
So tell me again… Where’s the comparison? Where’s the battle?
If anywhere, it must be in your mind (speaking to those who believe it’s one over the other, but “not both!”), cuz’ it does not exist! GET OVER IT!
