Jeff Prosise in Kansas City
INETA has giving the Kansas City .NET User Group the luxury of having Jeff Prosise speak at our group tomorrow. Unfortunately, I will be out of town during the presentation. If you are in the area, this event is highly suggested. I'm leaving for the airport in a few minutes to catch a ride to Kansas City. Tomorrow night I speak to the Kansas City .NET SIG. Join the fun if you're in the area. I have a new prop to try out in tomorrow night's talk. I won't say what it is so I won't ruin the surprise. ......

For Expecting Fathers
Seems like a lot of bloggers in our community are expecting to be fathers soon. This list includes me so I thought I would share a book I have found useful during the prenancy. The book is titled The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be and thus far (5th month) the book is very good. It is a month-by-month guide that lets you know what your child's mother is going through. Along with these tips and facts, it covers financial advice to prepare you for the birth and other helpful ......

XML Dev Con Wrap up
All I can say is WOW! What a wonderful event. This is the first conference I have ever attended where I didn't skip a single session. Each was packed with information, some better than others, but none were irrelevant. The best part of every conference is the one-on-one networking. How many opportunities does a simple XML developer get to ride from the airport to the hotel with Tim Bray? Not many, in fact probably only once. The infamous Rory Blyth was amazing to watch, because he could ink photos ......

ESS and Atom, a happy ending
ESS, Event Share Specification, is currently in it's 0.91 version and will be where it will stay until something major is needed for future usage. It is drafted format, it was sampled for usage inside an RSS container element. We took this approach because at the time, RSS was the most popular source of syndication, but wouldn't always be. Now that Atom is gaining popularity, I have decided to add an appedix to the specification with a sample usage of ESS inside an Atom container element. The sample ......

Using XML For Navy Missile Systems
"This stuff isn't for sale". These are my notes from the presentation by Whitney Kemmey of the DoD. Software is mobile and can take battle damage and underwater. Re-targets missles and system maintance 8 years ago, main computer Main purpose of XML use is to speed up SOP process interaction. XML Parser = libxml ( The system flows is completely in XML instead of code. Best question was "Are you worried about other countries having faster parsers?", Answer, "No, we have bigger missiles" ......

Met Jason Olson Last Night!
I met Jason Olson last night at the Portland .Nerd Dinner. This was the first time I have met a blogger that I didn't know before they started blogging. It's definitely weird to see a personality in a blog and this put a real-time conversation in-person with blogger. I am going to name this concept "Handshakecasting", where you actually meet in person and then syndicate thoughts. Any takers?

XML Dev Con 2004
I am sitting here at XML Dev Con, jealous? It is definitely the event that everyone has hyped. Tim Bray gave a thrilling presentation on syndication formats and primarily the love of Atom. This talk made me dream of ESS being a popular syndication format and residing in Atom. Without changing the spec, I have tasked myself to write a sample of ESS inside Atom to prove it will work because of the containerless approach we took, it can reside inside the "entry" element. Anyone interested in seeing ......
