Upside-down, Downside-up

Stefan Tilkov,

Sean McGrath, in a blog entry, links to yet another article (does he do anything else than write articles?). The article makes a nice analogy between the paradigm shift from application-driven to even-driven user interfaces and the move from synchronous to asynchronous communications. I fail to see how the critique of BPM engines in the blog entry is backed by the article, though — last time I looked, something like BPEL (and thus, the engines probably as well) seemed to be suitable for describing interactions where one might have to wait for responses for weeks. Maybe I’ll need to check again.
