Web 2.0 and Ajax Are Not The Same Thing

Category: Editorial

My namesake, Dion Hinchcliffe, recently had some fun with a post titled 5 Earth-Shattering Things You Should Know About Ajax And Probably Don’t.

Maybe he had a couple of brews before writing this one, and felt quite jolly? :)

  • Ajax and XML, A Match Made by Acronym
  • Ajax Is Faster Than A Wet Dog
  • Never, Ever Forget That The Web Is A Real Jungle
  • Windows Is Dead, GoogleOffice Will Take Over Everything, And We’re All Just Living in Sergey Brin’s World
  • Web 2.0 and Ajax Are Not The Same Thing

Good for a laugh. In the last week, I am even more excited about Ajax due to seeing the results on how many people have got Ajax in production, and the great feedback that I got from OSCON.

It’s not perfect. But it has the reach, and it is layered upon knowledge that most of us already have (HTML, CSS, …).

So, is he joking about the Ajax and XML thing or what? I personally don’t like passing xml back to the client side. I don’t really care for JSON either though. I like sending back plain old JavaScript Objects.
