Yet another data format.

I don’t always agree with Dave Winer, but he certainly has a point today. Given the plethora of protocols like XML-RPC, SOAP, and the like, do we really need yet another data format?

JavaScript Object Notation, or JSON, may be easy to use from JavaScript within a browser, but are we going to start creating specific usage APIs? Will we have one API for JavaScript use and another for Java or C++ use?

There are already enough development problems with the standards we currently have, without going around and creating new ones.
