Ajax Bandwagon, everybody hop on!

For at least the last 6 months, I haven't been able to read anything without reading about Ajax: Ajax this and Ajax that. Well, you know, I don't mind technologies that change the way certain industries work, but all of the arguments for Ajax so far have been based on the same arguments other frameworks have been pushing for the last few years, namely, those driven by Echo. In fact, Jellingspot has used Echo since its inception in 2002 (that's why its admin is webconsole based, if you wanted to know). So, to me, all this talk about Ajax isn't all that interesting. The real question is, who has been pushing Ajax? Something is fishy ...

Of course, if something that makes certain applications easier to make and deploy to the web (especially as it relates to mobiles!), so be it -- you won't get any complaints from me! (this is just part of a broader plan to push RAD tools and frameworks...gotta make some new markets!)
