How the brain thinks - scary!

i found this at Mitch Kapor's Weblog:
"Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in
waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, olny taht the frist and lsat
ltteres are at the rghit pcleas. The rset can be a toatl mses and you
can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed
ervey lteter by ilstef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Web services, SOA and Service Bus architectures

This is an interesting article which talks about the roles of Web Services, Services Oriented Architectures (SOA), and the role of EAI.

I have to say that there is a lot new thinking in this area, which a lot of vendors are struggling to come to terms with, its far from clear, many have a legacy to protect, and a vision that they need to articulate.

With all of this, its too easy to look at nirvana and think that we will someday be connected in this enterprise-galactic glue of process managed asynchronous messaging that is location, technology, and vendor transparent!

Whats clear, is that the ideas are much further ahead than where most enterprises in reality are at.
