Back from Balisage

I never made it to Extreme, Balisage's predecessor, despite wanting to very badly, so I'm very glad I did go to its new incarnation. I'm still processing the week's very rich diet of information, but it was very, very cool.

Simon St. Laurent, who wrote one of the first XML books I bought back in 1999, Inside XML DTDs has a photo of one of the slides from my presentation in his Balisage roundup post. This is the kind of κλέος I can appreciate!

Balisage Presentation online

I just rsynced up my presentation on linking manuscript images to transcriptions using SVG for Balisage, that I gave this morning. It's at The image viewer embedded into the presentation is at Text paths are still busted at the highest resolution, as you'll see if you zoom all the way in, but apart from that it seems to work.

Balisage has been a really great conference so far. I highly recommend it.
