The second surprise is the wave of attacks coming at the use of the term. This is good to see that folks are finally starting to yell "where's the beef" and "the emperor has no clothes". Some recurring thoughts on SOA 2.0 are spot on. This is a compilation of my favorites so far.
You'll notice a pattern here. There are about 3 or 4 people who like the term and several of the entries in Google's blog search simply syndicate the same content. The above links are unique comments written by people who I consider pragmatic and smart, not based on this but on previous blog entries they have written.
