    One of the most common questions I'm getting here at TechEd is, "What's new in WSE 3.0?"

  • Blog Post: Mark Fussell on Binary XML

    Mark Fussell, currently working on WSE, let's loose on the W3C work on binary XML . Mark makes some good points.

  • Blog Post: National Weather (Web) Service

    NOAA is doing XML! It does my heart well to see our government going the SOAP route. Get your official NOAA forecast.
