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.
