Web services Adoption:Hype Ratio We all know that there is too much hype surrounding Web Services. Personally I think hype for a new technology is good but this hype should be retained under the walls of reality. XML-Journal has an article discussing the Adoption:Hype Ratio of web services.
Even today, I'm frequently faced with those who are disappointed at the progress of XML and Web services. My stock answer to skeptical questions about XML adoption is to talk instead about the "Adoption:Hype" ratio and agree that its value is at or near zero. The many successful projects cannot possibly match the infinite hype associated with the technologies.
