Been a long time.. I started to work on wikit again and hope to have a first version of enhancements (and then specs ;-) soon.

Also, I just read a great article from Paul "beating the average" Graham about languages in 100 years (I would never dare putting my name on an "in-ten-years-prediction", but 100 years, who cares.. :-). See also what Bob Techentin writes about it related to Tcl (never mentionned by Graham, contrary to Perl, Python, and Ruby; maybe it's too close to Lisp to be noticed.. :-( ...).

I have set-up a new page on the Tcl'ers Wiki to list the changes I have made to Wikit (the Tcl'ers Wiki engine) and my roadmap:

It's a "personal page" such as this one but as it's on a wiki, everybody, ...... I mean you can edit it! So go ahead! Express your ideas about wikit, Java, or Tcl! I'll answer the comments.

Update: it has been relocated to

I am currently extending wikit, the Tcl-based version of wiki (used by the Tcler's wiki) and will soon make the changes available.

I'm interested into the notion of people and networks, particulary in Lessig's idea of innovation related to the end-to-end argument and to lower cost of "proposing new schemes"; which involves new and interesting notions such as:

  • a person's identity (or anonymity),
  • communities, collaborations, e-vote, and also
  • resources or capabilities management.

In this respect, Advogato is a very interesting experience, both for its contributions and for its founding ideas, and the Debian decentralized PKI is very interesting as well.

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.
