Notes:

I program mainly in Python and Java.

I'm currently playing around with an RSS/Atom aggregator called Aggrevator, a code duplication detection tool (which I inherited from the original developer) called Same and a Wiki called KwikWiki.

I use delicious to track and organise the my wanderings through the noosphere. http://del.icio.us/ade is a window into the contents of my mind.

My interests revolve around:

  • Wikis
  • Syndication i.e. RSS, Atom and Atom Publishing Protocol
  • Large scale collaboration
  • Modelling complex financial instruments
  • Software system longevity
  • Collaborative filtering, trust metrics and reputation/recommender systems
  • Photography
  • Go
  • Software Craftsmanship
  • The views expressed on these pages are mine alone and not those of my employer. Just in case there was any doubt.

    Omnivorous inclusiveness and the closing of the browser parenthesis

    In the past I've thought of the web as a convoy of browsers. That turns out to be wrong.

    Nowadays (thanks to a long lunch with Paul Downey, Jeni Tennison,  et al) I've begun thinking of the web as a ship of Theseus where, despite replacing every single part of the stack, what's left is still recognisably the web.

    This made me realise that we are surrounded by unexamined and ossified metaphors that are in danger of becoming thought-terminating cliches. For example:
    - open web versus (presumably) closed web
    - the web browser is the web platform is the web
    - the web as a platform
    - web apps
    - web versus native

    New Advogato Features

    New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

    Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

    If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
