By Caitlyn Martin
November 3, 2010

Crowdsourcing the Goldman-Sachs Investigation (Crowdflower) -- Goldman-Sachs turned over "several hundred billion pages" of documents in response to a government investigation request. Crowdsourcing may be the solution, as with UK MPs' expenses. Clearly, technology presents a double-edged sword for investigators and other regulators.

XProc: XML Pipelines and RESTful Services

By Kurt Cagle
March 11, 2009

Anyone who has used languages such as XSLT should have a pretty fair idea about the complexities involved in treating XML as a programming language itself - it's verbose, forces thinking into a declarative model that can be at odds with the C-based languages currently used by most programmers, can be difficult to read, and as a syntax it doesn't always fit well with the requirements in establishing parameter signatures and related structures.
