Finally Finished

Today I finally hope to crawl from under a rock I put on top of me. In a moment of absent-mindedness I let Steve Vinoski (Iona) trick me into writing a article on web services for IEEE Internet Computing. You would think that by now I should be able to just sit in front of the machine and hammer out yet another paper, especially given that content and form were more or less up to me. This time however I just could not get it done, whenever I started it just didn't want to flow. Eventually I did manage to produce something and it is not too bad, but I will need some serious introspection to see what blocked me from getting it done because I wasted a lot of time on it. So today I plan to deliver "Web Services are Distributed Objects and other Common Misconceptions about Service Oriented Computing" to the editors, and will post the article here as soon as I have had some editorial feedback.
