Quiet's kind of nice

I've been enjoying myself lately by not participating in a number of things that I should probably care about.

I used to complain here about the madness of URIs, but this fine formulation has let me stop worrying about it. The W3C's Technical Architecture Group (TAG) isn't likely to accept that approach in my lifetime, but that's fine. I've stopped expecting my reality and their reality to have much in common, so I can safely ignore that august body's busy mailing list. I don't need Platonic Forms in my life, thank you very much.

I'm still active, though a little less so, on xml-dev, but even that list feels like it's mellowed a bit. More interestingly, though currently quiet, I started up the xml-hypertext mailing list. It's fairly peaceful there so far, but hopefully it'll grow with time.

Meanwhile, maybe I can get some work done.
