Wrapping up on Metadirectories

Well, I think that for the moment, we've worked over this topic pretty well. Ian Yip's done a great job of summarizing all the arguments, pro and con. Somehow he even made it amusing. (Ian have you considered writing for sitcoms or Jon Stewart?)

From all of this I can say the following:

Metadirectories are not dead
The Metadirectory discussion will continue for quite some time
Virtual Directories are definitely a viable alternative

and I think that Jeff Boren said it best: They’re just tools. I know that as a MaXware alumni that's the best summation. Pick the right tool and methodology for the job.
