Bushs most important speech!

It will start in few minutes: at 21 CET Mr. Bush will talk to his nation – and to the world in his „state of the union“ speech. In an election-year it is the most important speech!

Anyway, let`s see, and if you are able to watch it: do it 😉

UDDI Webservices: future of the internet?

we all know about the major problem of the internet: find the right information you need. so, uddi.org is going to implement a new standard (basing on xml, …) to connect webservices. the goal i see in it, is to connect different businesses togehter: why should the internet customer book his flight, his hotel, his car,…, at different companies?connect them with one standard, and he gets nice holidays just by booking the hotel. the rest will be done automatically: based on the data the user filled in when booking the hotel, a car will be rented (by choosing the cheapest one from the different connected carcompanies), the flight will be booked (by choosing from the cheapest airline) and so on. it is a very interesting technology, and when you see, which companies stand behind it, you can guess, it will be a success (maybe..;-)

Well, somehow it`s logically, but it´s even more „chilli“ into the the „discussion-soup“ about music-piracy…
