About

Back in 1999 I began to write a book called XML Programming with VB and ASP in which I wrote about some of the ideas I thought the web could achieve. I started vbxml.com and that matured into topxml.com

These days I recognise that we are verging on a tremendous time where things are beginning to happen in this space: social software, taggging, folsonomy and microformats. Someone said that they reckon the wiki is the most important invention of humanity.

While most of us thought the XML (or RDF) crowd would revolutionize the world of data… but in fact through sheer weight of numbers – the good old scrappy and disorganised HTML editors, writers and users will in fact categorize the data on the web.

I run a small company where we write software (reBlogger) and we give away copious amounts of $ to worthy causes.

I love the movie "Office Space". I'm a Christian.
