This just got pointed out to me through the minutes of the first day at the W3C workshop onWeb of Services. I must have missed this stirling move on the part of the TAG. I've mentioned before about sessions and Web Services and how WS-Addressing is not the right way of doing this, but WS-Context is better. Of course it's no surprise to see that contributions to this TAG effort are from heavy WS-Addressing users, but us WS-Context supporters need to be more pro-active.

I meant to post this last week but work got in the way. I first met Steve back in the early 1990's at a Usenix conference where we were both presenting. He'd recently joined IONA from HP and I knew of him because of his great work on ORB Plus, still one of the best implementations. We had several Guinness drinking sessions and he could easily drink most people under the table! We kept in touch over the years though I don't think I've drunk as much since! I wish him the best in his new job.
