In re: http://www.bpmn.org/ BPMN is something I’ll be spending more time on in the day job, and I’ve just started looking at it. Some notes: Looks a lot like UML activity diagrams. That’s a good thing. More expansive icon set for their activites and notifications, which is conceptually extremely helpful, although potentially just syntactic sugar […]

In re: http://ptsefton.com/blog/2006/11/08/self_preservation_1 Peter Sefton’s trying to recover his 1994 Word thesis into a sustainable document format, and migrating from 10 year old Word formats and media is no fun at all. He’s right: act now, while Mac Classic is still somewhat accessible. Been there, doing that again soon with my PhD (Word 5, 1998). […]

In re: http://www.supakoo.com/rick/ricoblog/Permalink.aspx?guid=873cc194-46b8-4dca-a0a8-d6ab8b688a3b As I had added into the Wikipedia entry, the Complutensian Polyglot edition of the Bible in the 1520s marked the highpoint of the initial trend in Greek typography to come up with an unconnected Greek typeface. By the time of the Complutensian, 40 years in from the first attempts of the 1470s, […]

In re: http://www.sarantakos.com/language/l-akrotites.html Ξαναδιάβαζα χτες τις σελίδες του φίλου Νίκο Σαραντάκου για τη γλώσσα, μεταξύ των οποίων και καταδίκες για το φαινόμενο της υπεράσπισης του πολυτονικού, ως το πιο πρόσφατο επεισόδιο στη διαμάχη γλωσσαμυντόρων και… άλλων γλωσσαμυντόρων. (Για να μην ξεχνάμε την εύστοχη παρατήρηση του Πήτερ Μάκριτιζ, πως η λογοτεχνική δημοτική δεν ήταν λιγότερο τεχνητή […]

In re: http://conference.lis.upatras.gr/topics.php Έπεσα τυχαία στην παραπάνω σελίδα καθώς έψαχνα τα του νέου μου επαγγέλματος. Καράφλιασα με την καταχώρηση: * Οντολογίες (Ontologies) … !! Και επίσης άσχημο μου φάνηκε το αμετάφραστο Tutorials. Όσο για το “Μάνατζμεντ” βιβλιοθηκών αντί διαχείρηση — νισάφι! Βέβαια μετά μια ματιά στα μιξοεγγλέζικα του Μάξιμ ελληνιστί (ε, ο θεός να τα […]

In re: http://ptsefton.com/blog/2006/11/01/repository-maintenance Some random thoughts on permanent identifiers (my day job), triggered from Peter Sefton’s post above. The HTTP proxy address to resolve a Handles (or whatever else) permanent identifier for a resource is binding the permanent identifier to a particular protocol (HTTP) and particular host ( hdl.handle.net, arrow.monash.edu.au, whatever). This has the advantage […]
