Over Sys-Con.tv, Jeremy Geelan has conducted an interview with the Father of the Term "AJAX" – Jesse James Garrett. Some of the Questions and Answers of the interview are:
JEREMY GEELAN: I've got to ask you, and I know that everyone watching this interview Web-wide on SYS-CON.TV wants me to ask you: are you fed up at all with being "The Father of the Term AJAX"? - because you don't look it...
GARRETT: No, no, not at all. It's been fun. It's been really great for me to have the opportunity to talk to people all over the world and it's so exciting to me what's happening with AJAX and with the evolution of Web technology. I'm excited to be a part of it and so many of the people that I talk to, people at events like this one, are excited to be a part of it, too. That energy is what keeps me going.
GEELAN: You're seeing a massive take-up. This sort of call to action at a seminar like this is clearly: go and start doing it, and find out about it, visit your site, nose around with it. What would you like to see happen in the course of the year? Were you hoping that the enterprise side of it would be sorted out by the community? What were your ambitions? There may be none.
GARRETT: There are certainly, at this point, things that I'd like to see happen with AJAX in the world. Obviously, the ongoing development of toolkits to make it easier for developers to put AJAX applications out there into the world, but it's going to be a process that's going to take some time for those to reach an appropriate level of maturity; I'm sure there's going to be a profusion of different approaches there. But what I think a lot of people miss in the discussion about AJAX is they get hung up on the technology, and they get hung up on code and things like that.
I think the reason AJAX is compelling to anyone at all is because of the impact that it has for the users, the way that it is able to create these applications that have these dynamic rich experiences to them that change the way we think about, the way we relate to the medium. My hope is that all of the people who right now are wrestling with the code, once they get to the point where they're more comfortable with the code, they can turn their attention to what it is about AJAX that makes it so compelling for people, and explore and push the boundaries of that.
