About Us

A famous Roman poet once said "It is difficult not to write satire." Working in the software industry, and in particular in the much-hyped Web services space, we feel this way a lot. The smoke-and-mirrors vaporware world of software deserves more parody than it gets, so we thought we'd contribute our voice. We're not really anti-Web services; we believe that they're a meaningful and disruptive technological innovation.

We hope the site makes you laugh a little. We don't have any illusions of grandeur about our talent or the innate hilarity of our subject matter. It's a bit of an experiment with regards to the subject matter. How much humor can you squeeze out of SOAP and WSDL? We'll see.

Don't expect this site to change every day. In fact, every week might be pushing our luck, but we'll see what we can do. This is the sort of site that will sink or swim on its readership. If nobody comes, it'll cease to exist. We may be geeks, but we're not that pathetic. We've got plenty of other hapless pursuits to follow up on.

We'd be remiss if we didn't cite The Onion as our inspiration. It is the model for any humor site on the Net, and makes us shoot milk through our nose on a weekly basis.

Let us know what you think? Is this stupid or sublime? We also welcome suggestions and submissions for new stories, site features or anything else you'd like to see. Email us at editor@webservile.com.
