Talis Platform

A few days a go I was bored. I had read loads about the ‘Talis Platform’ a open standards ‘you can talk to it with an API’ type thing that holds data, and shares it with you (or more to the point, shares it with your application).

Could a non-programmer like me make use of this? Hello No! but I did wonder if a non-programmer like me could cut ‘n’ paste their examples and play for myself.

Read my experience of it (though it is a little like watching the slow boy in the corner trying to read Roger Red Hat)

As an aside, I wrote this article using WordPress, but as ‘pages’ not blog entries – WordPress has basic Content Management features like creating standard pages. (Richard: that’s why it didn’t show up on RSS!).
