XTech 2008

I am greatly looking forward to the closing keynote at XTech 2008

The programme looks great. Who could resist a conference sporting a paper on Javascript with a teaser that says:
    In JavaScript there is a beautiful, highly expressive language that is buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders.


Te heh heh.

Permanent URLs for legislation

Quoting Rick Jelliffe

    "All documents, views and metadata at all significant levels of granularity and composition should be available in the best formats practical from their own permanent hierarchical URIs.”


As someone with more than a passing interest in legal and regulatory publishing I am in violent agreement with this.
