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.

That's a very interesting read, Joe. I'm wondering if you can point to any current examples of content-creation tools/methodologies that are addressing the problem, even in a rudimentary way, of ensuring that content is consumable by the applications that need it. Or is that still in the future?

Hi Larry. Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. An excellent question. I am thinking that an answer indeed lies in the future. There have been success stories where the vision has been realized within the specific context of a given organization - typically ones creating or sustaining large-scale equipment systems - but those techniques still await distillation into a fully repeatable method and system. No surprise, this is one of my skunk works projects - and it is a project being advanced in collaboration with others so I am routinely pulled back down to earth. The good news is that from all those stubbed toes and bumped foreheads we have accumulated the necessary lessons so this final step doesn't seem that big anymore.
