when i'm god-emperor, I'm replacing all the JSON with XML

@Elizafox I forgot XSLT, XPath, XSL, comments, attributes, and the angry old people who remember Symbolics that call it "a bad reimplementation of S-Expressions"

@calvin none of those things are desirable for anything going over the network in a protocol

and XSLT is awful, so is XPath

then again I'm not an enterprise person and firmly believe enterprises aren't capable of simple


@calvin like they wanted XML to be easier to implement than SGML then proceeded to reinvent SGML poorly
