Subject: [json] Now! XML Free!
Jesse James Garrett gave an old idea, dynamic update as an alternative
to page replacement in web applications, a new name: Ajax
web application development has become the hottest thing since canned
beer. But the hipsters aren't using XML, they are using JSON. These
new apps are about data, not documents, so JSON just makes more sense.
They still call it Ajax, but there is still that x hanging there that
just doesn't fit.
So my suggestion is to drop the x. That yields Aja.
King Aja was the grandfather of Rama. His consort was the heavenly
Aja was also a top rated Steely Dan album.

Good idea, what can we take advantage of in the AJAX juggernaught?
That is the right connection, a light one capable of being severed
when AJAX sinks.
At the risk of repeating, how about JSON?

Think of the branding there though. Friday the 13th...Jason Lives.
