A friend from several years ago, Douglas Crockford, contacted me recently to let me know about his JSON Saga video.

"So somehow, in the whole XML hysteria, we'd forgotten the first rule of workmanship, which is: use the right tool for the right job. Instead, we got distracted on this other thing, which was one tool to rule them all. That's not good engineering, that's not good craftsmanship, that's not the way you do things."

It's an interesting video about the history of JSON. And... about 22 minutes in... you'll find a nice little note about REBOL.

Thanks Douglas.
