A great description of how one of these things is not like the other.

I'm playing with different binary transport options right now, and it's
interesting how things that look similar on the surface are so different
underneath.  Thrift, for example, is all about RPC.  Avro is all about
serialization, and RPC is an afterthought.  Protocol Buffers seem somewhere
in the middle.

Meanwhile, XML and JSON are still the lingua franca if you're providing
publicly accessible service APIs.  Whoops.
