Interoperability as a state of mind

    "ASCII or no ASCII, XML or no XML, a truly interoperable file format is one that has been designed specifically for that purpose, not one that organically grows out of internal defensive programming practices.

    Interoperability is a state of mind. You need to be thinking about the other guy to do it right. Only people whose job description includes thinking about the other guy, have the luxury of doing so."
