I have learned that new Mastodon users should do an #introduction.
I’m a hyperoverprivileged straight cis white greybearded neurotypical male. Living in Vancouver, Canada with loved ones.
I can’t not write, as evidenced by the 2+ million words on my blog at https://www.tbray.org/ongoing and also “timbray” on Twitter.
Tl;dr: Geek and environmentalist. For details, type my name into your favorite Web search, I’m overly public.
@timbray I can appreciate the "can't not write thing" I don't have 2million words, but you've given me something to shoot for
@timbray Hello! 👋 I've been sort of following you since the early 00s, but I do like to thank you for your work co-writing the XML specification. Your work in web standards is really valuable and much appreciated. 👍
@timbray I should probably write a proper introduction on my profile, but I am secretly hoping this lurker status reduces my obligations to participate as I have a penchant of over sharing as well.
@timbray are you embarassed by your work on xml or is it just not worth mentioning now? cos i really appreciate you and xml!
@zens Not at all. We were a bunch of publishing-technology geeks who wanted portable internationalized structured unicode documents. XML is quite good for that. We were surprised when people used it for all that other weird stuff.
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you. Mastodon.cloud is maintained by Sujitech, LLC.
