Will a “man on the moon” strategy of investment in educational technology lead to an era of unprecedented economic prosperity for the United States? The Obama administration thinks so, and is putting its money where its mouth is in its 2012 fiscal year budget with a proposed $90 million education research initiative modeled on DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency that was instrumental in the invention of the Internet. On February 4, 2011, the administration proposed the creation of a new agency called the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Education, or ARPA-ED.

Microsoft's Dare Obasanjo, who is known for his scathing critiques of technology trends and products, including some of those promoted by Microsoft itself, has just written a blog post analyzing why OpenID, AtomPub, and XML on the Web (including XHTML and SOAP) have failed as technologies.
In his conclusion, he sees a common issue with all three: they were each designed to solve a specific niche problem, but they were promoted as if everyone should be using them. In the end, adapting those technologies for other uses proved too complex and didn't give the benefits they were supposed to deliver.
Finally, he mentions "NoSQL" (a buzz word meaning non-relational databases) as something that developers should analyze with these lessons in mind. Will NoSQL end up joining this list of failures? Let's take a look.
