I originally wrote this article on the use of Webservices as open standards and interfaces towards the goal of Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a submission to a conference. In it I had a whole bunch of diagrams and for this publication I re-edited it as I thought of a whole bunch of other stuff.....but they left it out of the online version! :) Anyhow heres the link to it  http://www.infoage.idg.com.au/index.php/id;1112176599;fp;16;fpid;0

Its published through the Australian Computer Society's Information Age magazine. I havent seen a copy of that yet so can someone tell me if it looks better in there? :)
