  • Blog Post: The Impact of Enterprise 2.0 on the Enterprise

    When I think of the impact of Enterprise 2.0 in the next 5 years, I can't help but imagine there's a war brewing. Web 2.0 was the big love fest, can't we all just share data and get along with standards? Enterprise 2.0, by contrast, doesn't share that same vision. Today's view is, "Can't we all just...

    A question popped up on an internal email distribution list today about how to expose a WCF service using WebGet and how to post POX (plain old XML) to that service using the .NET 3.5 WebInvoke attribute.
