DB: Well, the first thing we started doing is we’re attacking the problem as you said, not one at a time. We’re doing it on multiple fronts. The first thing was, “How do we basically build AJAX and how do we debug AJAX?” And, “How do we see what’s going from the client side of this to the server?” The second side of this is we needed to get the knowledge out about, “What are the issues?” The third side of this is a document that people [would] write to give to AJAX programmers. And then the fourth thing is you look for the technology side of it. “How can we basically start securing the technology?” And that work is under way right now.
IW: Has Microsoft made any commitments to joining OpenAjax at this point?
DB: None. They’re thinking about it at this point.
IW: Are there any other major companies on the sidelines?
DB: Well there’s plenty of people that are in discussions with us, and those people in discussions with us are folks like Apple. … The other companies are mostly in Asia, which we’re actually making overtures to, as well as more open source projects.
