Today, XML is 7 years old.
Irwin asked what we were doing at this time 7 years ago. Well I was a Junior at Clinton High School in Clinton, Missouri taking PASCAL and BASIC. I really hope they upgraded their development classes, maybe I should check.
What were you doing when XML was born?(image)

I predict this will be the year of the Event! Whether it be OpenEvents or ESS, both I am a part of. One of them shall be victorious and we will see aggregators and sites publishing or subscribing to event information in a syndicated format. I also think the Atom/RSS battle will continue but people will decide to provide both because if you have one, you can easily support the other. Luckily ESS will support both so no matter who wins we are ready. This is a focus for OpenEvents as well.
Long live the Event!(image)

The team is back! The team is back! And with a blog. Mike Champion, who was a recent MS hire, started the XML Team blog along with his own blog on MSDN. Very cool, and thanks for listening. He also has a cool title, "Program Manager - XML Standards". Good job Mike, and we look forward to hearing from you and the team.
Is Arpan back? Hopefully.(image)

Irwin Dolobowsky has recently taken over the XML Developer Center at MSDN with many promises of a new center for XML developers. During his self admitting 2 or 3 "first post" entry, he states a few items he is going to do to make the dev center better. This post took place a month ago, and here are some results.
I am not trying to pick a fight, I just wish somethings that are said will get done.

Inside of which he talks about the XPathDocument being editable and XQuery support and we know that is not going to happen. The show is basically based on his article that needs to be updated, but that is doubtful since everyone on the WebData XML Team either left or has went back into an unknown hole to not be found. That is another problem for another day (not people leaving, but who is left and where are they?). If I was on the XML team, I would suggest this MSDN TV be edited or attach a disclaimer about the no longer valid statements that are made in this video. (image)

So now that Dare and Mark are gone, where are the System.Xml team bloggers? No I am not talking about the "Have-to-blog-bloggers", but the real bloggers that want to help the community understand System.Xml and it's power. Mark points us to Arpan Desai, but with a total of 9 post, I don't think he is going to be a valuable source. Pretty much looks like we are going into the dark with feature announcements for System.Xml 2.0+ and it will be like System.Xml 1.0 where we all had to just figure out what to use because no one introduced the features to us. This is disappointing, but it does leave and opening for the XML MVPs to be the announcers for System.Xml. Oh well, good luck Mark and Dare! (image)

Well in my excitement, I figured public article released a week prior to the public preview, this stuff is in there. Wrong! About 75% of this articles content (which is great) is not available in the bits we have today. This makes it real hard on me because I am preparing a presentation for DevEssentials in June about the new features. Looks like this might be a powerpoint driven presentation, however, I do get to show off XsltCommand, but no XQueryCommand. (image)

Great vid, lets people know that XML does get complex if you go beyond configs and RSS.(image)

"This stuff isn't for sale". These are my notes from the presentation by Whitney Kemmey of the DoD.
