Last year CapGemini's Steve Jones wrote about how in his opinion "thinkins is dead" and how IT values technologies over thought. At the time our article generated a long and lively discussion, with many people agreeing with Steve. In order to illustrate what he meant, Steve used REST as an example of a technology that is discussed and used far too much, in Steve's opinion, without sufficient thought or evidence behind its benefits in a particular area. This was something which caused a lot of discussion in the comments, with a number of people disagreeing with the example and comparing it more favourably to technologies such as Web Services, which in the past Steve has preferred.
