Welcome to the second part of this 3-part article. Much has happened since I
wrote the first part: for instance, I am now a member of the Web 2.0
Workgroup and I have also been selected to speak at SYS-CON's SOA Web
Services Conference & Expo 2006 in New York City in June.
Many thanks for all your feedback to the first article. I would also like to
introduce Tony Fish (who is my co-author for OpenGardens ). The authors of
