I'm a software non-executive, living and working in Tokyo.

I'm fond of doing stuff with open-source GNU Project and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl/Python) tools, and XML and DocBook.

I'm a member of the DocBook Technical Committee at OASIS and of the DocBook Open Repository development team, and owner/moderator of the xml-doc mailing list.

I also write a few things when I can for xmlhack and some other places. I wrote a piece a couple years back called Don't Learn XML.

Read some random wisdom.

Put together a couple of Emacs menus recently: a DocBook menu and a template menu that interacts with Christoph Wedler's template.el package. Working on a menu for RefDB.

Launched Software Executive in a Box ®, the industry's first Automated Corporate Communications Solution (tm). Independent laboratory tests have proven that it's capable of generating output that is every bit as significant-sounding yet every bit as meaningless as the descriptions of concepts and "initiatives" that make up the bulk of the press releases and morale-boosting this-is-what-we're-all-working-towards internal presentations and e-mail messages that actual software executives produce.

I added a bunch of new wisdom to the script that powers the wisdom mill.

I made some updates to the site I set up for my friend Roger Boylan's book Killoyle, An Irish Farce, including adding a new page with the links to a synopsis of his sequel to the book and full text of the prolog and first chapter.

Lennart Staflin announced the release of a new ALPHA version of Emacs/PSGML. Anybody can download it and try it out. From the announcement:

I have taken Dave Love's patches and merged with the changes I did between 1.2.4 and 1.2.5. I think Dave only tested with Emacs 21, and I haven't done extensive testing either. It would be nice if we could get this working on Emacs 19.23, 20.7, 21.x and on XEmacs ??.? before doing a public release.
