Oh this from DotNetCentric was excellent.
There is no war between scripting and compiled languages — both are here to stay. What we need to do is look at how we can get the two to interoperate. Is WSDL the way? Maybe. And maybe we need to look at other approaches, ones that will be effective from both sides of the typing fence.
As with open and closed source, the scripting and the compiled language environments must learn to co-exist with each other, or we’ll never have the interface we need to be able to safely practice chaos within our own domains.
