in reply to PM and XML (ab)use?

XML makes it easier and more accurate (not to mention way cooler ;--) but bypassing the "official" way to navigate sites started a long time ago, with deep linking and ads filtering, not to mention extracting Dilbert strips in bulk {grin}.

I think the fact that PM is XML based is excellent, and we should all go crazy experimenting with it,.

What we can gain from playing with the site is really important:

  • we can of course all get better at processing XML with Perl
  • so we can showcase what you can do with XML in Perl (remember that for most people XML = Java)
  • we can demonstrate the importance of using XML and how it enables the creator of a site to offload adding new features to users

Basically Perl Monks is like a playground where we can all experiment on how to best use XML. Sites that delivers an XML version and that we care about are not that common, so really we should keep on building funky XML thingies, (and use the Offering Plate!)
