There was a story on EWeek about the XmlDevCon. It's a very good article, actually. There was a certain amount of XML bashing, as XML does have its problems, as eloquently pointed out to by the likes of Tim Bray and Sam Ruby.

It was nice for Corillian, Patrick and I to be pointed out as success stories:

Not every aspect of XML is judged to be a potential disaster—far from it. Two presentations have demonstrated how XML is enabling solutions in the real world: one from the U.S. Department of Defense on using XML for Navy missile systems, and a presentation from Scott Hanselman and Patrick Cauldwell of Corillian about effectively using XML in financial systems.

All in all, I think it was the best SellsCon yet.  Great location - dispite my original misgivings - and great facilities.  It was very well planned, and it showed.

Congrats to Chris Sells and crowd for a great con, and thanks for inviting us.

Scott, great presentation - thanks.

when you waved from the door I didn't realize you were leaving for good, I just figured you were heading out for a while!
Sorry I missed you - hopefully next time we'll have longer to catch up. I'll bring my spot watch next time and you can try to sell me on it again!
