"It didn’t take long for JSON to become the hottest thing since Pam Anderson slowly bounced her way down the BayWatch beaches. And why shouldn’t it be? JSON is easy to understand visually, easy to parse on both the client and server sides, and is supported in just about every language except aborigine. There is however one problem I see with the way JSON is used by developers today: lack of validation. Most developers assume the JSON provide is not only error-free also in the proper format. Bad assumption."
