Submission + - "Pre-AJAX" Pioneers Discuss AJAX's 2nd Bir

An anonymous reader writes: AJAXWorld Magazine marks the second birthday of the coining of 'AJAX' today by asking the early pioneers of rich applications delivered into web browsers how it was for them when suddenly on February 18th two years ago a single, easy-to-comprehend term arrived to help them propagate their new-web goals. Those canvassed include David Temkin of OpenLaszlo, Coach Wei of Nexaweb, and Burton Group analyst Richard Monson-Haefel, whose contribution is to temper the undiluted optimism of Temkin, Wei, et al. by saying: "Given a choice I would much rather work with Adobe Flex 2 than AJAX simply because the tooling is much better."
