ISO meeting in Atlanta, day 3

The meeting started with a show-and-tell session, where people showed each other various tools and projects they were working on. I didn't attend this session, and instead spent the time preparing for the TMQL session. ...

ISO meeting in Atlanta, day 2

Day 2 started with a presentation by Naito-san about a proposal from him and Komachi-san about a standard format for publishing PSIs. They suggest using Dublin Core to describe the PSIs. They also suggest creating topic maps to describe the PSIs. Finally, they brought up the question of which standards body should do the work (OASIS or ISO). Again, I'll link to the slides once I have them. ...

ISO meeting in Atlanta, day 1

This is an unofficial report from the winter meeting of ISO JTC1 SC34. This is the committee responsible for SGML, DSDL (XML schema language framework), and Topic Maps, which usually has a meeting late in the year in conjunction with the XML USA conference.

XTM is not Topic Maps

For some reason a large number of people continue to believe that XTM is Topic Maps, which just isn't the case. This happens over and over again, and has all kinds of consequences. Sometimes it's no worse than people calling the technology "XML Topic Maps", other times people will make mathematical models of XTM or really implement the syntax as their model, which can be bad enough to render their work irrelevant. Which is of course a shame. ...

A blog

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, maybe a couple of years now. It always seemed like a good idea, but I was always held back by uncertainty about what to write about, how to write it, and how to find the time to write. Ideas for things to write would crop up now and then, but they never really excited me enough that I found myself doing anything about them. ...
