Yahoo! Guru Eric Miraglia on "The Intentionality of Wisdom in the AJAX Age"

Dr Eric Miraglia: "Right now is the time of AJAX; its time will pass."

"We invent terms like Web 2.0 and AJAX to define the things that are moving past us, reign them in, get a handle. But we still get caught up in the rush." That, says, Dr Eric Miraglia of Yahoo! (pictured) should not stop us from remembering the eternal truths of IT organizations anywhere.

Here is how Miraglia explains it:

"Stand up in a room with 30 engineers and ask them: what do you need in order to do your job at a higher level, to produce a product your deeply proud of, one that will win in the market and change the world? They will always tell you the same thing: Time. Resources. A better product design."
At AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, upcoming March 19-21 in New York City, Miraglia will give a session about what he calls "the intentionality of wisdom."
"Right now is the time of AJAX," Miraglia says. But, he asserts, "its time will pass."

"The ingredients of excellence in developing rich internet applications for the browser are, by contrast, timeless," Miraglia continues. In his session, he will harness what he calls "some of the compelling voices of the industry" and put together  "a cookbook for success, one that we can use to create the real change in our organizations that is required if we want to engineer next-generation Web-based products of which we're deeply proud."

I really like how Miraglia explains it: "Stand up in a room with 30 engineers and ask them: what do you need in order to do your job at a higher level, to produce a product your deeply proud of, one that will win in the market and change the world? They will always tell you the same thing: Time. Resources. A better product design."

Hi Eric Miraglia--

Went to high school with you and your sister Sheri and brother Roger. Always wondered what became of all of you. Knew you'd all go far.

Hope life is treating you well. I traveled around the country quite a bit, but ended up as an attorney in Monterey, CA, with my husband and three kids.

Drop me a line some time and let me know how you and your siblings are doing in the world--

You seem like you might be able to answer a question for me. I recently saw that they are talking about standardizing Ajax. Why was it not done before? It would simplify things a lot for people trying to use them and for he use of them around the world. I am surprised that this has not been done before now. If there is not one set way for something as widely used as Java, would not a lot of problems could arise from people doing even the slightest different in anything? Anyone working on it would run into a wall with just one character being any different. And now there is debate about if it should be standardized? How can anyone have any doubts about this? I just do not see the point of anyone not wanting it to be uniform. Anything that you could give me on this matter would help me out a lot. I thank you advance for you attention here.
