The banner above is our real home with even old haunts like the Campanile and the Clairmont visible in the distance. The fog is no small hint at what's going on here.
To find out exactly what's going on here, use the navigation bar below the banner for the items explained on the left. The links take you to our experimental pages.

Who Is This Guy?
That's me in September of 1998 at Underwriters' Report, a weekly insurance newsmagazine. I wrote its accounting, classified advertising and commercial advertising software and designed the production system around QuarkXPress after building it on the Compugraphic MCS.
In 1994 I developed an employee handbook in HTML which led to putting the publication on the Web. Tagged Quark files were converted into HTML and uploaded to the site moments after we'd put the publication to bed.
I make my living these days in text and imaging processing, Web technologies and journalism.
What's Happening Here
While this site is entirely hand-coded HTML, a lot of tools are showcased at this domain.
The Rodari Project is typeset in InDesign (after spending many years in Quark XPress), formatted into an InDesign book and output as Adobe PDF files.
We test intriguing new technologies here when we can.
Thanks for stopping by.
We actually use this site ourselves (and not just to try out new Web technologies), so we make changes all the time. We share photos here and post phoku in our phog. We sometimes may post a translation or another incomplete work.
'Wait a Minute ...'
It would almost always catch us by surprise. We'd advance the film on our Nikon FM2 only to find out we'd already taken the last shot.
Sometimes that happens in life, too.
After 13 years as the editor of the Imaging Resource Newsletter, we have parted ways. It's going one way, we're going another.
We wish the company well and remain grateful for the opportunity to discuss our passion for getting the picture with each reader who welcomed such a long email every two weeks in their inbox.
But as we used to tell our (usually) patient subject when we realized we had to put a new roll of film in the camera, "Wait a minute!"
