Because someone gave it a name, a way to symbolize it and that became a buzzword and everyone is hyping about it. Would Linux be as popular if it didn't have a name? I don't think so :)

72dpi has given us the layout for Ajaxfreaks.com: [a href=\"http://ajaxfreaks.72dpi.net.au/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ajaxfreaks.72dpi.net.au/[/a]

It is green yes, and I think some may complain about that, but I and about 5 other people I have given the link to, think it's appropriate.

We'll begin working on the site early december.

Regards,

Very cool layout. Reminds me of my site :P.
Well i would love to help out and write tutorials etc, if you were to help me out too by giving links and such.

And btw, AJAX will not be the next boom. It's not even something you can develop that much. It's just a method of sending and receiving information, how much more complicated can you make it? You can't.

I and many others will disagree with that.

It's not that it's a new technology or really even a new language, it's the ability to streamline applications, enhance server processing, and tie together many of our favorite languages to enhance not just our website, but our web applications.

I've seen a few very popular applications already implementing it, and we plan to do the same with Hybodus. It's going to be interesting.

Now, I don't think it's going to be as popular as XHTML, XML, or nothing like PHP, but it is catching on and it will be popular.

Exactly. What I like about it is the ability to refresh things on a page without having to reload the entire page...such as if you pick a state it lists all of the cities in that state without refreshing the page. It is the next big boom! Even Microsoft and phpBB are using it...and if you know if they are using it then it is a big thing since they are the last to pick up everything in hopes to follow the most popular fav instead of paving the way for it...that was mean. Didn't mean to make fun of phpBB or Microsoft....wait yes i did.

I like the AjaxFreaks design, I assume that the logo will be altered though? So that there is something in that circular part, where the <? is in the PHPFreaks logo...

Yes it should be changed soon enough. I have been talking to Ryan about it, the designer of the logo, and he is working on making a trademark logo for AJAX. Currenly one does not exist to our knowledge, so we hope to set the standard. Such as php having the <? and Linux having the tiny peguine thingy. We will update you on what we find out on that part. Any ideas, just post them here as we are drawing blanks on what we should make.

Well I am glad to see the green looking good. Like SA said, looks a bit strange at the moment without the logo finished, but it will look good soon.

Nice to see the good use of find and replace with PHP and AJAX!

Let us know any updates, Eric.

Well obviously AJAX is great, speeds things up and is very cool to play with, and make great web applications that run smoother, however one of the reasons i say it won't be "the next boom" is because its javascript. SE don't read Javascript, so you can't make a whole site out of AJAX. Only application type things can be made AJAX, such as a domain name look up that i made a while back.

I mean its great everyone knows that, however, don't get so carried away with it... Seriously, you can barely make about 3 different ways of an AJAX engine. The reason i say this is because it isn't a very broad subject to be called a "next boom", something like PHP is!

Well I think making an entire site out of AJAX wouldnt really be a good idea, it would be purely for adding applications to your website and implementing XML docs, etc. to your website. However virtually anything that needs a page load could be improved with the use AJAX.

It will be back up once we can convert it to SMF. Sorry for taking down the whole site, but IPB was vulnerable.

That is good, I was worried something was seriously wrong with AJAXFreaks.

I am am beginning to prefer SMF over Invision as I havent really used it before. Are you planning on building it within the website like it was before, Eric?

I know pretty much nothing about Ajax, but from what I read it sounds very interesting. Bookmarked Ajaxfreaks, it looks fantastic! I'm definately a fan of the green.

This is a .44 Caliber Loveletter straight through my heart.
