Jeff Offutt

The concept of a web service sounds wonderful- computers communicating and solving problems directly without troubling humans.

This innovative model of business has many advantages but we still have numerous problems, some of which may be insurmountable, to turn the science fiction into reality. This talk analyzes some of these problems and outlines possibilities for solutions.
