What's in a name?

Dare Obasanjo is right the hype over AJAX is too much. But his assessment is only true from the standpoint of a programmer. From the standpoint of an entrepreneur/innovator, it's the small things that matter. Apple didn't invent the MP3 player, but they repackaged it, gave it a cool name, made it beautiful and captured a huge chunk of the market. Jeff Veen is right as well. Adaptive Path, Google, and others have commercialized AJAX. They've made it human, and guess what; it's going to be used a lot more.
