Here's the skivy on XML:
XML is a topic of discussion that is closely related to topics such as Markup languages, metadata, metalanguage, and the semantic web. After getting familiar with these topics, then you can start to grasp what XML actually has to offer. XML is a service brought to us the world wide web consortium(led by the efforts of TBL), it is a technology that uses previously devoloped technologies to enhance the web viewing experience. It is a technology that doesn't do anything, but does alot at the same time. Grasping this concept is hard...XML is a set of rules or guidelines that describe how to do a certain job, XML knows nothing about doing the job, all it knows how to do is translate it into a language that a browser will know what to do with it. Kind of Fed-ex, Fed-ex knows nothing about the package, all they know is how to get the package to its destination, then at the destination they will know what to do with the package. That is a subtle analogy, and doesn't exactly describe what XML does. But here is my research page of XML, feel free to post any new information you find to help out with the research process.

Heres the yomp:
I've decided to refine my NKDA project on open source to focus on: Open Source Technology Group and its projects, open source funding, the open source model and the impact of Eric S. Raymon and Richard Stillman. Although this does seem like a wide variety of topics when talking about open source software, the connections between them are extremely important and offer much potential for software users worldwide.

The topic I’ve chosen is the Advertising on the Internet.
When I compare TV vs. the Internet, TV is centralized and packaged whereas internet is more individual-centred, personal and local.
We all know what are pop-ups, banners… but these techniques are all fashioned. Customers are fed up with being annoyed with such adverts. New trends become evident:
The first trend is “AdWord” (the links u find on your right on Google). The difference is made by the fact that the advert is related to the subject u are looking for on the search engine and that it’s only written adverts.
The second trend is “Viral Marketing”. This technique is a revolution in the way that consumers themselves talk about a good and can criticise it via web logs...
The third trend is that internet is not anymore at home but on streets screens in big cities.
Could you help me developing these trends. My point of view is that brands try to be more and more integrated, invisibles and adjusted to different audiences.
Any ideas are welcome!

My project involves the technology used in journalism up until the advent of the Internet, and how things have changed since its inception.
While I am having difficulty finding sources who are willing to theorize on where things are going, and am avoiding the bloggers vs. journalists debate (also with some difficulty), the focus of my paper is starting to emerge.

My project is about the social impact of mobile technologies (cellular phones in particular). The society is trending toward greater individualism. What I want to know is: Has mobile technologies facilitated this or responded to it? Is this technology influencing/ changing social life? I would greatly appreciate all your help. Here is the link to my first itération. http://weblogs.upei.ca/node/2514.
