Real-time Geography

"Real-time Geography" is a better, more accurate catch phrase than "Geo-Web". The latter has been trading on universal, yet shallow recognition of the significance of the (HTTP REST) World Wide Web despite being composed of services that are not of a web.

I accept GML, more or less. I still don't see how W*S is better for real-time geography or environmental monitoring than good old HTTP.

Update: Google is determined to keep the Geo-Web banner flying. Via All Points Blog.
