All I Want For Christmas is AJAX

All I want for Christmas is Ajax

I don’t want a tall skinny tree

or lots of presents under it.

All I ask for are some Web 2.0 goodies

that are zipped and not wrapped.

I want PHP and not PAJAMAS.

Give me widgets and not gadgets.

Give me a torrent of flashy gifts that flickr brightly under MySQL clouds.

I want Wiki and not wassel.

I want Christmas feeds and not Christmas food.

I want shareware and freeware and not underwear.

I want my OPML Christmas list to be meta-tagged and checked twice by automated folksonomy-based aggregators exhibiting an emergent Christmas cheer that can be mapped visually and dynamically on my poor and miserable blog that limps along like Tiny Tim on the pathetic crutches of Web 1.0 architecture.

All I want for Christmas is Ajax.

And may God bless us . . everyone.
