Java is so 90s - thought you'd all like this

Doesn’t mention Ruby directly but does talk about whats hip (LAMP which
I guess means we can include Ruby).

I sent them the following comment:

Protege (protege.stanford.edu) is an interesting case in point. It
is a portable Knowledge Base (e.g., ontology editing) framework,
written in Java. However, it may be accessed via web services and
Java’s BSF (Bean Scripting Framework). So, scripts can be used to
extend Protege, use it as a server, etc.

Nope. At least not when I see the acronym used.

Rarely have I seen a LAMP discussion that bothers to explain that one
might also consider coding with a non-P* language, or using Postgres, or
running under Lighttp, for example.

Which is a shame; technology selection by acronym is probably not an
enlightened decision procedure (‘LAMP Considered Harmful’).

But, as AJAX has shown, many people prefer to gulp down a buzzword than
digest a full plate of technical details.

It made me think of a phrase from earlier times:

“Java is the COBOL of the '90s”

Hello.

James B.:

might also consider coding with a non-P* language, or using Postgres,
or running under Lighttp, for example.

Or even change all four components, ending up with FLPR
(FreeBSD, lighttpd, PostgreSQL, Rails): http://flpr.org/ :o)

We oughta popularise the R* (read: R-star) stack - Ruby and whatever
else you like.

Some of you won’t like this… What about WISR?

Windows, IIS, SQL Server, Ruby.

Not exactly open source though is it?

Mind you the acronym is nice. WISeR.

LADR = Ladder , pretty pronounceable. ( we build upwards )

Puby, or LARD or LAMR … all negative connotations. … puby … just
reeks
of teenage angst.

although, who knows, having somthing like LARD might work … sometimes,
you
need a good hook to get people to remember something …
