Mar 24, 2006 : Spain!

Today I leave for Spain for a week. Our family is visiting my sister who is studying in Denia, Spain for a semester.

Mar 21, 2006 : Konfidi paper accepted at a WWW2006 workshop: MTW'06

Earlier this week I found out that the paper Andy & I wrote for our senior project, Konfidi, at Calvin College got accepted at the Models of Trust for the Web workshop. That workshop is on May 22, and is part of the WWW2006 conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.

This is pretty exciting! I will be attending to present the paper, but Andy will not be able to, unfortunately. I'm a little nervous about it all, too, of course.

My friend Andrey has a friend in London, so we're working on coordinating flying out there together. I'll probably then take a train from London to Edinburgh which could be pretty nice.

Mar 07, 2006 : Wikis: tagging releases and building distributable docs

I want to create project documentation on a wiki, and be able to build well-versioned, distributable releases. I've yet to find a wiki that can do this.

First, you have to be able to generate stand-alone documents (preferably HTML or PDF) that are still navigable and usable (i.e. not just a big dump of the wiki). Some wikis do this.

Second, you have need to store the documents in a versioned repository. One like subversion, that will support tags. You should be able to tag the whole wiki as "release-0.3" and then be able to browse the whole wiki as it was at that release and be able to rebuild that release's PDF/HTML docs. Subwiki seems to be dead; Kwiki has a SVK (distributed SVN) plugin, but I haven't tested it yet and I doubt you can browse "at" a tagged release.
