Blog archive Work and technology National Library of Australia Fields of Interest My contributions Articles xSiteable CSXTM Fresco.org Ego ergo sum About this site
I contribute to the best interest of the web as best I can, through voluenteer work, paid work, or my own initiatives through publishing or participation in web culture.
I have written a handful of articles that has been published here or elsewhere, which I\'ve sorted and archived here.
I am and have been involved in a number of projects, both on and off internet. Those on of any interest are;
A music review site for free music, usually artists without a record-deal trying to make a note of themselves. I\'ve written a number of reviews there, and was selected \"review of the month\" for october, 2002.
Fresco.org used to be the Berlin Project - or berlin-consortium.org - which is a cross-platform windowing system based on Unicode, OpenGL and CORBA, promoting \"doing it right\". I am their website developer, where the Fresco.org XSLT framework was the \"daddy\" for the xSiteable project.
My XSLT based framework for Topic maps and website generating.
I participate in a number of mailing-lists and newsgroups throughout the web. My main mailin-lists are:
- The main topic maps list.
- About the semantic web.
- The Sablotron list.
- The list for developers of (or interest in) the Fresco.org project.
And my favourite newsgroups are:
alt.fan.dune - Frank Herbert\'s \"Dune\" and derivatives and similars.
comp.human-factors - Human issues in computer systems.
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html - About authoring HTML.
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.site-design - Website authoring, design and implementation.
Through my participation in the two latter newsgroups, I\'m featured and quoted in a FAQ article about not to use fixed-width web designs. Here, I\'m sided with such HTML giants as Eric Jarvis and Alan Flavell, in \"alt.html FAQ : What are the disadvantages of fixed-width design?\".
