I had big plans for April 1st. I was going to write up a bogus specification draft. WS-Syndication. Implementing syndication feeds and content publishing using the WS-* family of specifications. Then I started to catch back up on the various specs. Damn there are a lot of 'em. That's a lot of work just to come up with a convincing sounding bogus spec. Suddenly the joke didn't seem as funny as it once did. By Friday evening I gave up.
Note to IBM: we've got to do a better job at making this stuff easier to understand.
The joke was on me
