Things are changing faster than ... well, check that. Front end things are changing very quickly. As far as web servers go, Apache is still probably #1 with IIS a close second.

However, this particular application just begs to be called "data driven"
and that just happens to be where things are hot. The basic design is simple
enough: VEE logs to a data store & a script invoked from the web server pulls from the data store & spits out html.

What particular data store & script language you use is where all the fuss lies. The Archive uses IIS, MySQL & PHP on the output side. It took a total of a few days to figure it all out.

An alternative script language is Ruby. There's also a whole web framework written in Ruby called Rails. The combination is called Ruby on Rails, and it's probably going to take over the world. Ruby is the coolest thing since sliced bread.
