North Carolina — I've got meetings next week hosted by Red Hat in Raleigh. A participant in the W3C XML Query Working Group recently changed affiliations, and I'm hoping that we'll see Red Hat get a little more involved in some of the "enterprise-level" XML stuff that's going on. There are a number of open source XQuery implementations that are pretty good, by the way. Maybe I'll also get a chance to take some photos. Any student willing to have his ankles photographed, let me know :-)

loui, I always liked Pat Lashley's MonaEyes program on NeWS -- it was the Mona Lisa painting, but the eyes followed the screen pointer. But you're right, the motor-driven xeyes is even more fun! Also, clinical studies have suggested that people get better results in exams if they do them barefoot. Really. The theory I heard back in 1982 was that shoes make the feet too hot, and this encourages the blood to flow into them, making them pink, and making less blood available to the brain. Whether that's the correct explanation I have no idea, but study barefoot!
