the growth of the XML standard on O'Reilly.
"In this article I consider the two most common ways of growing XML technologies, particularly in the context of standards bodies and the XML development community. While these two methods are well-known, I draw my inspiration from an XML-DEV posting by Roger Costello. His post suggests that there are two ways in which a technology may be developed: by committee or by "the market." In the committee case, a group of people -- often an element of a standards body -- is primarily responsible for the development of the technology.
