AJAX and SOA: Sofa King Good

Cartoon Promo Scares Boston, But a Different Video Generates Laughs

An anonymous blogger has decided to cover SOA, and presumably AJAX along with it. One of The SOABlog's first entries somehow connects the dots between a new cartoon that led to the resignation of the head of the Cartoon Network. Actually, the cartoon didn't cause the ruckus, but an ill-advised promotion in Boston that fooled the city into thinking a terrorist attack may be imminent did.

The cartoon is now out, and The SOABlog points out that a similar, albeit slightly cleaner, sensibility is also apparently at work at staid SOA and AJAX vendor TIBCO Software. A new reality series starring a fictional character named Greg the Architect has been posted at a newsletter site that is underwritten by TIBCO. Two episodes are at this site, although it looks like there may be a few missing. We found episode four, for example, but not one or two. We're hoping the creators behind this clear this up for us soon, and also produce more episodes. This video does seem pretty darn funny, so let's see more!

An anonymous blogger has started to find humor in AJAX and SOA, somehow. One of his/her first discoveries is a semi-subservice video called 'Greg the Architect' that was apparently developed by AJAX and SOA vendor TIBCO Software.
