It was Paul Graham, in his essay on "Web 2.0," who said that "Basically, what 'AJAX' means is JavaScript now works." Many i-technology companies are lining up to agree with Graham, who added: "As you read this, a whole new generation of software is being written to take advantage of AJAX."

As Graham noted, there hasn't been such a wave of new applications since microcomputers first appeared. Many of the companies behind those applications, as well as those behind the code behind the apps, are either sponsors or exhibitors of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo.
