The Devil’s Dictionary (2.0)

I thought I’d give you something to scroll through until I write my next proper post – The Devil’s Dictionary (2.0). There are quite a few excellent definitions from the world of modern technology. My favourite is the definition of XML:

XML, noun

A magic elixir of legend, claiming to solve all problems while inevitably exacting an ironic cost.

“Once we drink the XML and take care of a few minor things — parser, DTD, entification, well-formed-ness, validation, namespaces, I18N, XSL transformations, schemas — all will be peaceful in the kingdom!”

What’s yours?
