 +====== EMF is social software ======
 +What I realized at EclipseCon: ​ EMF is firstmost social software. ​ Fundamentally,​ it's a better JavaBeans with a performant reflective API.  ​
 +Oh--and unlike java.lang.reflect,​ they **encourage** you to use the reflective API.
 +Not surprisingly,​ the result is that EMF has become the seed out of which a whole lot of really cool meta programming tools have sprung:
 +  * Graphical modeling tools
 +  * External DSL creation tools
 +  * Code templating engines and code generators
 +  * Much more...
 +IMO, that is both the simplicity and genius of EMF.
