   thank you, Robin Cover

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I've been traipsing through various archives while working on an oddball
project, largely trying to figure out if anyone had taken the path I'm
trying out before.  I didn't find anything, which is just fine, but over
the course of searching I found myself more and more in awe of the work
that Robin Cover's been doing for many years.

I liked it so much that I wrote a weblog entry on it:

There's lots in there about how the Cover Pages have helped us through
these dark times where all the promised auto-discovery hasn't yet come
to pass, but I think one of my favorite things about the Cover Pages is
its quiet style.  To quote just a bit from the weblog:

I suspect the Cover Pages deserves lots of credit for connecting people
and programs at many levels on a regular basis for nearly eight years.
In PR-speak, that might result in triumphal press releases about
"enabling [millions | billions] of [dollars | euros] of [enterprise
integration | document management | hacker twiddling] with XML and Web
Services." The Cover Pages prefers to describe itself as an "Online
resource for markup language technologies" - no small achievement.

I think Robin gets periodic thank-yous for his work, but I think a few
extras are (always) in order.
