  Ajax 1, Greek Mythology Link - www.maicar.com
Ajax 1 then made sure that Achilles' arms were taken to the ships, and under a shower of darts carried the body to safety, while Odysseus fought his assailants.
Ajax 1 believed that the arms were owed to him, either because of his unsurpassed deeds during the war, or because he had rescued the corpse of Achilles.
For this great Ajax 1 saw himself (and many agreed with him) as the performer of unsurpassed deeds, and therefore (he thought), the Palladium should be his.

 Ajax
Ajax at first gets the better of the encounter, wounding Hector with his spear and knocking him down with a large stone, but Hector fights on until the heralds, acting at the direction of Zeus, call a draw: the action ends without a winner and with the two combatants exchanging presents.
Ajax, assisted by Menelaus, succeeds in fighting off the Trojans and taking the body back with his chariot; of course, the Trojans had already stolen the armor and left the body naked.
Ajax's prayer to Zeus, to remove the fog which has descended on the battle - even if the Greeks are destined to lose - to allow them to die in the light, has become proverbial.

 Ajax is Still Dutch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Ajax recruits the great majority of their youth talent by employing over thirty professional talent scouts in Holland, with more scouts located strategically throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
The young athletes do not live in "Ajax dormitories." They live otherwise normal lives with their families, attending normal schools while getting bussed to and from De Toekomst on a daily basis.
Even if a player never cracks the Ajax 1 side, the mere fact that he is under contract to Ajax will get him more than a passing notice with most professional clubs around the world.

 Ajax and REST, Part 2
Ajax lets the user interact with the server via a "fire and forget" interaction style: the user performs an action and the system can process it in the background while the user continues with other work.
In an Ajax world you move away from this "green screen" model to a true client-server model, where the client is stateful and dynamic, and where the server is responsible only for providing atomic, stateless services.
Ajax presents unique challenges because both the user experience and the underlying architectural patterns are deceptively different from their server-side counterparts.

 justaddwater.dk | AJAX businesscase: Reduce development costs and increase usability
As a followup to my earlier post “AJAX performance stats, ROI, and business value“, I decided that I’d share with you some considerations on a recent project I was involved in.
This entry was posted by Jesper Rønn-Jensen on Wednesday, February 8th, 2006 at 12:00 and is filed under AJAX, Businesscase.
I agree with Yoink, but if you compare the solution of Jesper with their previous version, there is no more bandwidth usage than in their first version (with the page back-and-forth solution).

 Silicon Valley Watcher: Where can you find Flickr and Apple in the same room? At the AJAX Summit of course. An insider ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
AJAX is shorthand for "Asychronous Javascript and XML." (Read Adaptive Path's defining paper.) The term itself has a pretty loose definition (for example, some of the most well-known AJAX applications do not use XML).
A great deal of technical information was exchanged by the participants, and a general consensus that AJAX can be used for realistic, tactical improvements to websites (as well as ambitious projects like Google Maps) emerged.
AJAX technology obviously has great promise: three months after being named, AJAX technology is already getting baked into the websites of the Web 2.0 startups and the Web 1.0 giants.

It will be forevermore difficult for Ajax to retain the breadth and depth of talent necessary to play the great Ajax style, because the requirements are so high: the fundamentals of true Ajax football are described as TIPS: Technique, Intelligence, Personality and Speed.
I think Co has tried to make this Ajax team play that way in the past (it didn't work), and he will strive for it in the future (if he has one).
If Ajax keeps scoring, and winning, and if the defense holds together, I think we'll see more of the typical Ajax style of play, more of the georgeous, hyper-intelligent swagger, more of the Ajax of old.

 LukeW: AJAX Interface Design   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
AJAX allows every element within a Web interface to be individually and quickly updated without affecting the rest of the interface.
Though auto-saving form elements is possible with AJAX (each input can be sent over to the server as a user fills it in), removing the Submit or Save button is likely to cause users to question whether or not their data was stored.
As AJAX applications become more widespread and users begin to expect more of the rich interactions they enable, some of the over-communicating happening today may not be necessary.

 AJAX - MDC
Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) is not a technology in itself, but is a term that describes a "new" approach to using a number of existing technologies together, including: HTML or XHTML, Cascading Style Sheets, JavaScript, The Document Object Model, XML, XSLT, and the XMLHttpRequest object.
When these technologies are combined in the AJAX model, web applications are able to make quick, incremental updates to the user interface without reloading the entire browser page.
Ajax is also a dangerous technology for web developers, its power introduces a huge amount of UI problems as well as server side state problems and server load problems.

 An Introduction To Ajax
The term Ajax is used to describe a set of technologies that allow browsers to provide users with a more natural browsing experience.
Before Ajax, Web sites forced their users into the submit/wait/redisplay paradigm, where the users' actions were always synchronized with the server's "think time." Ajax provides the ability to communicate with the server asynchronously, thereby freeing the user experience from the request/response cycle.
Ajax could have made the user experience more pleasant by providing a more responsive UI and eliminating the flicker of the page refresh.
