Chapter in MIT book on SOC

About 2 years ago I wrote a paper for a special issue of the CACM on Web Services and transactions. A little later, I was asked by the guest editors to write an extended version for an MIT Press book on service-oriented computing. It's taken a little longer than the editors or I expected, but finally it looks like the book is coming to fruition. I got some good feedback on the chapter (which tried to cover all of the efforts in this space in an objective manner) a few weeks ago and now need to finalise the work by the end of the month.

One thing this did bring to mind is precisely how long I've been working in this area (and transactions in general). Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
