Discovering something truly new is rare. There's almost always someone 
who discovered it before you. Sometimes we don't believe them, though, 
until we discover it for ourselves.

Interestingly though what Ken rediscovered is not AJAX. It's one of the 
design principles of REST: all application state should be stored on the 
client and passed to the server with each request. That he discovered 
this in the context of AJAX is an implementation detail.
