I plan to jump back into the Service Description Language (SDL) comparison, probably by starting on the REST side of things, but perhaps by starting on the comparison work for SSDL, the SOAP Service Description Language. I also plan on adding the recently emerged WAIF to the SDL mix, taking the total number of description languages we'll be looking at to 15. Undoubtedly we'll learn many things along the way, other than Ruby is so far the coolest language in which to write loosely coupled web services.
