This one was my wife's idea, so I won't take credit for it.



Hey, what're you tryin' to push on us?

Another Star Wars motivator from yours truly!



This one's got a bad motivator...

OK, I have the Sci-Fi motivational poster bug now...



Sci-Fi Motivators

One of my good friends sent me a link to Star Trek motivational posters. Very funny!

You could come up with a whole series of these things, with classics from Star Wars, Star Trek (each series), Battlestar Galactica (new and classic), Buck Rogers, Doctor Who, and more!

Here's a first attempt with my favorite character:

Harvard Yard

It's pronounced "Hahved Yahd"...

Working on a very cool project at Harvard Business School Publishing this week! I seem to be flying a lot to Boston this year, with projects at Fidelity and Harvard, and I'm also a panelist at XML2006 (which will be in Boston this year)!

It's Official! DocBook v4.5 is now an OASIS Standard!

As of October 1, 2006, DocBook v4.5 is an official OASIS Standard! The voting went right down to the wire, as many of the eligible voters had neglected to vote at all. However, of those voting, the approval was unanimous!

In other cool DocBook news, the upcoming UBL v2.0 OASIS Standard submission will include the DocBook "editable source!" Nice to see that some of the other standards are using DocBook as the basis for their documentation!
