I’ve spent the last few days at a workshop on overlapping markup in Amsterdam. It was organised by Claus Huitfeldt and Michael Sperberg-McQueen under a GODDAG banner, but included representatives of other approaches, such as the XCONCUR crowd and the LMNListas Wendell and myself.
I haven’t been posting here very much of late because my XML-related posts (which tends to be most of them) have been going on xml.com. When I joined xml.com, the promise was more exposure with a wider audience. Then they changed the blogging system, and changed it again, and by now I’m not sure if there’s any audience at all!
However O’Reilly have, finally, provided author-based Atom feeds. So if you want to subscribe to my future xml.com posts, the crucial URL is feed://broadcast.oreilly.com/jeni-tennison/atom.xml. If you want to see my previous posts, they can be found under the “blog” tab on my author page.
The other day I finally got around to watching the first episode of Britain From Above. The episode talked about the various networks that keep Britain working: water, sewage, electricity, gas, road, shipping, trains, telecommunications and so on.
One segment was about the railway system during the rush hour (might only be viewable by those in the UK). The description runs:
Transport expert Jon Shaw reveals that every morning as millions of people start their long commute to work they are using a system which is so overloaded it is on the brink of disaster.
I’ve started blogging on XML.com. There’ll be rather less XML on this blog as a consequence, but I do plan to keep it going for less XML-related posts. My first post is about Bad XML; read and enjoy. FWIW, if you didn’t already know, I’m also now on twitter.
