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.

Hi Joe,

Thanks (again) for putting all this online!

You say:
"As they achieve a level of completion these Content Scenarios will be made publicly available under a share-alike type license and perhaps under the agreement (unenforceable probably) that organizations using them take steps to provide some contributions to the collection."

From what I understood share-alike is not a really nice license because it is viral, any work that includes it should be licensed under the same license, or a similar one, but there is no any other similar license defined... From your description you seem to want Mozilla Public License, that basically says that if someone modifies your code/data they should send you their changes and you may include them if you consider them useful in the original work.


Joe Gollner

Yes, you are right George. It is better to go with something that would be more "welcoming and gentle" and the Mozilla Public License sounds like it follows that path.

And I was thinking that one of the sub-working groups for a DITA Code Sprint would be one focused on content scenarios that can help focus a spotlight on specific functionality and establish some test cases that people working on the Open Toolkit can use as a benchmarking resource. One of the ways that Content Scenarios can be useful, I believe, is that they can encourage non-developers, as in content creators and curators, to work concurrently with developers and to provide inputs that fundamentally assist the development efforts.
