Far more interested in building than in documenting (who isn't), this listing comes with an apology for its haphazard representation of my online activities, not all of which survive. When I'm up to something, this page is generally the last to know.
- Here's a demonstration of XSLT 2.0 in the client, processing overlapping markup. It uses an alpha release of Saxon CE, which has an expiration date (after you look, with any luck).
- Life After Death: A Manual: an edition of Gustav Fechner's Büchlein vom Leben nach dem Tode as translated by Mary C. Wadsworth (Little, Brown & Co., 1904), upconverted from plain text, encoded in TEI and published in XHTML and PDF versions. Stylesheets available from the page.
- For JATS-Con 2011, I did some work on stylesheets for cleaning up XML namespaces, which can be downloaded here.
- The Sonneteer (a demonstration of structured form) is cool enough to remember, but no longer interesting enough to maintain (sorry).
- LMNL: the Layered Markup and Annotation Language is a specification I designed with Jeni Tennison in 2002, leading to various outcomes including conference papers and demonstrations. On and off, it is still being worked on, so your search engine may be your best friend if you are interested.
- PeasML (an authoring tag set), WGLL (an SVG driver tag set), other markup experiments ...
- Digital photography, tai chi, biking, yard work ...
Think of sustainability, ecosensitivity, healthy balanced complexity. The high technology will be green, there will plenty of animals around, and everyone will be able to find organic vegetables locally.
Pay attention! If you're not already into something (gardening, organizing, mediating, meditating, composting, cleaning, singing?) you need more help than a web page can give you.
Piez.org is a virtual and collapsible organization, an outpost in cyberspace (where every point is the center). Shell, shingle, structure, story, a claim staked in the territory of the imagination.
“Piez” is a German name, with a German vowel (like “Dietrich” or “Bier”) and an Americanized “z.” It's probably a German short version of Peters (Pietsch or Pietz), but it's curious that “piez” is also Greek for “press,” as in wine press, printing press, or a type of electricity created by pressure: piezoelectricity.
