I generally only blog and comment on stuff I am directly working but Don passed on this fantastic article that really brings the whole JSON vs XML into High Definition.
Currently all my work involves XML, we have not made the jump to AJAX in the banking world, and while I am sure that will change in the not to distant future, it appears that JSON really provides the light weight alternative. Unfortunately I can see this coming down to whatever Microsoft will decide to back.
People like me want mature IDE's and rich well supported tool set, so I will invariably go with the flow!
