Web2.0 and SOA… synergies and complexities

I was recently asked to contribute to a couple of articles(The Merging of SOA and Web 2.0,Experts See Link Between Virtualization, SOA) by Darryl Taft of eWeek(Ziff Davis). I initially took an excessively “SOI” approach to this discussion only to have a conversation with Steve Graham that really helped me establish a more realistic set of comments around the junction between Web2.0 (with it’s requisite behavioral challenges around collaboration, composition and empowerment/personalization), and my natural slant toward SOA – namely the changing dynamics of system composition with a strong bent toward “systemness” or NFR’s.
The quote is certainly more accurately attributed to sgg, but is certainly a collaboration!
Thanks Steve!
