    Press Release
    ----------------------
    Springfield, USA - October 2, 2002 - Webservile.com, a leader in Web Services satire, launches its new Web site today. Featuring stories that lampoon various aspects of the Web Services community, Webservile.com parodies this emerging technology and aims to become the Onion of the Web services world.

    “We’re not really anti-Web services,” said site founder Wilfred Seymour Davis-Larson. “In fact, we think it’s a great idea. However, every good technology deserves some derision and when we looked around, there seemed to be a real gap in the Web Services satire department. Plus, we’re totally unemployed and have plenty of time to waste.”

    The first stories on Webservile.com are:

    * Company Celebrates One Gazillionith Query to Web Service <http://www.webservile.com/stories/gazillion.htm>
