I just received an interesting promotion from TIBCO -- a blank Valentine's Day card, suitable for reuse (can't get more service-oriented than that...).
The quote attached to the card:
"Love is patient, kind, and service-oriented. It involves some complex processing, ultra low latency messaging, and going with the flow. Love means getting away from the office a little early on Valentine's Day..."
Who said SOA has to be a cold, heartless endeavor? And why not apply service-oriented principles to your most important relationship(s)?
