Neil- I apologize for any offense this post caused. I was using your tweet as a jumping off point for discussion. I think there is confusion in this area, even if you yourself are not confused.

As I mentioned at the end of the post, I think your book is very enlightened and relevant to the adoption of CEP technology. I'd love to have a conversation with you about decision services and CEP, in public or private. I'll follow up with you offline.
