 Jeremy Geelan's i-Technology Blog: "Truly, Madly, Deeply AJAX" View on SYS.CON.TV: Real-World AJAX San Jose "AJAX Power Panel" Not since the formation of NATO in 1945 have four letters been combined to such globe-spanning effect, nor has any 4-letter acronym since then been the subject of such hyperbole.
