I've just added the three presentations I gave in New York last week (1 at
the NY Object Developer's Group, 2 at XMLDevCon 2000) to my Web site.  Some
of them may be interesting/useful/hateful for members of this list.

(Since I'm a computer book author, these tend to be very text-heavy, and
I'm not sure having a speaker is necessary.)

XML's Interoperability Problems: Not as easy as it seems
	Describes the complexities of changing parsers or supporting XML parsers
	which may not support the exact set of features you've used.  The 
	problems described are internal to the XML and the Namespaces specs,
	not the general problem of shared semantics.

XML for Small Projects and Small Organizations
	Suggests that XML has as much use for small projects as for giant world-
	conquering ones, and that smaller organizations may benefit from its
	opening up integration that used to be proprietary.
	(based on http://www.simonstl.com/articles/xmlsmall.htm)

XML Schemas: Needed Rules for XML Documents (updated from March)
	An overview of Schemas, for the most part, with a very few examples.
	Not a full-blown tutorial, but a general guide to features.

These probably won't prove to be exciting beach reading, but they may be of
interest to some folks.

(Yes, I've started doing my slides in XML again, thanks to a handy XSLT
stylesheet Don Park cooked up for XTech.  I'll be putting up XML+CSS
versions in the relatively near future for those who want the whole
document at one go.)
