I'm Norman Walsh. If you're browsing the web with graphics enabled, that's me over there on the right, or at least it looks vaguely like me. (6 Jun 2003, even more vaguely since I switched to a more artistic depiction.)
The following links say a little bit more about me...
Here's a bio that is sometimes used to describe me:
Norman Walsh is a Lead Engineer at MarkLogic Corporation where he works with the Application Services team. Norm is also an active participant in a number of standards efforts worldwide: he is chair of the XML Processing Model Working Group at the W3C where he is also co-chair of the XML Core Working Group. At OASIS, he is chair of the DocBook Technical Committee.
More informally, I'm a skeptic, but I was also a big fan of the X-Files. Yes, I want to believe. But I don't. Like most Americans, I probably watch too much television. Going back a few years, I was a devoted follower of Star Trek, Dr. Who, and The Prisoner. No, I don't read enough. Technical and science stuff, mostly.
I'm disorganized by nature ("hopeless" is what Deb usually says), but I've become completely devoted to my PDA (it was a Palm, then a Sidekick, then an iPhone, now it's an Android phone). It seems to keep me organized. More or less. If nothing else, I can carry interactive fiction around with me, which is just way too cool.
Below are some of my interests away from the computer. Really, I do stop sometimes. Honest!
