Human Markup Language
Thu, 30 Aug 2001 08:35:11 -0600
I thought humanML was a joke, but looks like these folks seem serious.
I think we need more MLs, like LivingML, AskingForaRaiseML,
BuyingBreakfastML, DinnerTalkML etc...etc...
Seriously though, I get a feeling that XML is being stretched too far with
these new attempts to capture human characteristics as XML.
