The big xml tools have hardly changed in the last ten years. Tools elsewhere have changed enormously. Personal anecdotes about where web development has thrived while the markup community has been relatively subdued.

This raised some (polite) hackles. One respondent remarked that while the web people came and went, the core of the markup community has always been the document people, and we’re still here. So I realize that I’m a document person in just this sense. But my recent interest in the IndieWeb means exploring a different world. I already sort of knew that, but this underscores that.
