Duck Typing, MustIgnore and the Web

Thanks in part to a private email from Stephen Downes, who seems to have enjoyed my post on Duck Typing and AI, I now see that

  • the MustIgnore principle in XML,- the Web mantra Be strict in what you send, generous in what you accept,
  • and duck typing

are the same idea. A very important idea indeed.

More later on this.
