Fellow Web 2.0 Workgroup member Dion Hinchcliffe and two Microsoft architects Harry Pierson and Michael Platt have blogged about SPARK, a plannned series of high-level forums hosted by Microsoft on the topics of SOA, Software as a Service, Web 2.0, and Edge.
Michael's post describes an interesting moment that led to SPARK's initiation...
"I sat down and generated a powerpoint deck about Web 2.0 and SOA which I presented to the architecture strategy team in December and then to an internal audience of the Microsoft field architects in January at our internal tech briefing event. This [has] generated a ton of interest and acted as a big wakeup call around Web 2.0."
I know architects. I know some at Microsoft. They're not into fluff.
Expect to hear more...
