Quick notes One major personal gripe I have is when people call XML a standard. XML is a standard -- a standard way of defining other standards! You can create proprietary, closed tag-sets using XML which is exactly what Microsoft does, and then claims they are open and standard. Sheesh. And in case people have forgotten, XML is not any sort of interoperability panacea because interoperability is not a technology issue, it's a business issue. Microsoft is employing the same proprietary lock-in strategy with XML that it always has.

Just for fun Hah! Here's an excellent account of an investment banking internship for a U of Chicago MBA student.
