When It's OK to Use Ajax

If you are working in a Web2.0 company that needs to provide evidence of
their
technical expertise in order to gain new clients. However, you must
remember to
keep your offering in beta and make sure that it in the same family as
these
examples:

    * geotag-based apps via flash
    * tag-based instant messaging via Ruby on Rails
    * community podcasts via api mashups

1)  Nielsen didn't write that article.
2)  It's a spoof of an article Nielsen wrote.
3)  The article was posted on this mailing list a couple days ago.

My apologies! Nielsen writes on his own site

"Ajax Sucks" article is not by me
An article is currently making the rounds (even featured on Slashdot)
that looks
very much like one of mine, until you read the very bottom of the page
that
clearly states that it is by another author and written as a spoof.
Please don't
send me comments on this article, since I had nothing to do with it.
