I’ll use this entry as an anchor for my observations on the first day of Extreme Markup Languages (See also: Looking forward to Extreme Markup Languages). I’ll update it with a note each time a new talk begins, but I’ll add my comments on the talk in the comments section. I also added a numbering scheme for the talks, to correlate to comments.
If you happen to be reading this in an aggregator, much of the meat is in the comments, so you might want to click through.
