My Photo

Oxford England

  • The End of the Road
    These photos are separated from my Travels album because Oxford is something of a second home. I still manage to visit it several times a year. So the pathway between Manotick and Oxford is well trodden and I can likely do it with my eyes closed - and probably have on more than one occasion.

Royal Roads University

  • Hatley Castle
    This series of photographs was taken over the last few years. I have stayed at the campus of Royal Roads on several occasions and I have been repeatedly impressed by the grounds. They are in many ways a little-known treasure.


  • Kafka Statue
    Here is a selection of pictures I have taken during my travels over the last few years. I am very obviously an amateur photographer and it is not uncommon for me to forget my camera altogether when packing. What the pictures do not convey is the fact that in these travels I have met, and gotten to know, a great many interesting people.

Manotick Ontario

  • Springtime in Manotick
    Manotick Ontario Canada is the part of Ottawa that I call home. Much of Manotick stands on an island in the Rideau River. Interestingly, the Rideau Canal, which runs through and around the river, was recently designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. So this means that the view from my backyard is in some way on a similar par with the Egyptian Pyramids - although the thought strikes me as ridiculous.

I think you hit the nail on the head partner!
The human angle is so important and so easy to forget when we are deep into taxonomies, data integrity and "knowledge management".

Now what I want to know is who's good, and who's ugly?

Hi Thom

The human angle is definitely an interesting side to this whole puzzle. At times, however, it seems that the challenges lurking on that side are so monumental that it is quite understandable that most projects prefer to turn a blind eye. Finding reconciliation, when it has happened, has come to pass somewhat unexpectedly - through the introduction of an "intellectual framework" that helps the different parties see a common path forward. It's always odd when cold intellectualism can be invoked as a mediator between contending professional passions.

As for who's who among the good, the bad and the ugly - I have my thoughts on who is who, and these are being hammered into a presentation right now (my talk at Intelligent Content 2010). So my answer to that question is coming.
