I’m at a little loss to know what to put in this blog at the moment.
- Tim Bray and some other readers want me to get off technical details (”nitpicking” one called it!) and consider “elephant in the room”; but someone has to examine technical claims.
- A reader has asked about Groklaw: but I need to get on with paid jobs. (I’ve got the Wikipedia one, a Schematron pilot project for a national government, some document processing work, some updated versions of the Topologi utilities, and probably some training notes to prepare.) I’ve mentioned the things that interest me (the strange claim about bitmaps, the whole issue of contradiction) and I suppose MS will have someone working to compile a rebuttal; if it comes up in the Wikipedia material I might do something, but I don’t know if this blog is the right place in any case. On the other hand, the clock is ticking…
- Other people have sent me questions about Wikipedia and ISO procedures. OK for Wikipedia, but for a blog? ZZZZZ
- The schematron-love-in maillist has been contributing quite a few changes to the early beta (some nice catches!) which I need to fold into the source code for ISO Schematron. It would be nice to blog about that.
- There has been discussion of a Technical Corrigendum for ISO Schematron. Murata Makoto-sensei has found some issues while doing the Japanese translation for the JIS standard that would be good to fold in, to keep them in synch.
- And, of most interest to new readers, I guess, I could blog listing the Wikipedia changes I suggest or make. But there is the discussion pages on Wikipedia where anyone can read. On the other hand, if I do that it would lay me open to charges that I was using the blog for my temporary corporate overlords (WIFOW).
So what should I do? (Flames will be removed, unless they are funny :-))
