Hello, David Carlisle!

by M. David Peterson

For those unaware, Mr. MathML himself (AKA David Carlisle) has hit the ground of the blogosphere in what I can only term as a full out sprint...

David Carlisle: Hello World

Hello World

I thought I'd start a blog.....


SWEET! Welcome, David!

Now if I could only convince Wendell (Piez) and (B.) Tommie (Usdin) to start a blog, my eveel plan to get the who's-who in the land of XSLT** blogging will be nearly complete (Jeni Tennison being the final piece of the XSLT who's-who puzzle, though there are few others on my "list" as well... "Bwah, haa, haa, haa, haaaaa.... " ;-)

--
** Not that I had anything to do with David, or anyone else for that matter, starting his blog. I guess it's more of a check-list of people I wish would blog more so than a plan. But it' an "eveel" check-list, that's for certain! ;-)

TThere are you know, other members of the Math WG besides me:-)


Although for reasons that I'm not sure of, it seems that I can't tell you who they are, unless you're a W3C member. Stay tuned for some MathML announcements shortly....

Hey David :)


>> TThere are you know, other members of the Math WG besides me:-)


True that might be (though, as you point out, I couldn't know who they might be ;), but there is only *one* Mr. MathML. :D


>> Although for reasons that I'm not sure of, it seems that I can't tell you who they are, unless you're a W3C member.


Checks in the mail... Should arrive "any day now." ;-)


>> Stay tuned for some MathML announcements shortly....


Nice! Staying tuned... :)

Super! I cannot say I have ever used MathML, but I've always been pleased to know someone took the effort to create it. Methods for presenting mathematical equations have long been an area of difficulty for publishing scientific information.


To have David enter the blogosphere where we can read and comment on his latest thinking is indeed a wonderful event!

@Colin,


Took me a second to realize what you were referring to. No, that's a computerized audio reader, which in and of itself is obviously pretty amazing. They've come a *LONG* ways since the Speak&Spell ;-)
