Textuality's Business

Textuality has two purposes:

  1. To provide a place for people to find me, Tim Bray, and
  2. To provide a home for Lark and Bonnie.

T.Bray's Picture - 4 is better than 1 I work in the areas of system design, performance optimization, programming, lecturing, writing, and editing. I have a lot of experience in the workings of software, the Internet, documents, management, and financing. You can follow my thoughts on all this stuff in my blog, called ongoing.

My customers have included A.T. Kearney, B.C. Gas,, Daimler-Benz, Diebold, Encyclopædia Britannica, the European Union's Office des publications officielles des Communautés européennes, IBM, IMA, Jeppeson Sanderson, Keio University, Lucent, Medtronic, Merrill Lynch, The Microsoft Network, The United States National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Netscape, R.O.I. Systems, Software AG, and UWI.Com.

I served as a member of the World Wide Web Consortium's XML Working Group and co-edited the XML 1.0 and XML Hyperlinking specifications through their first several drafts, with an interlude of having been temporarily axed under pressure from Microsoft, because of my relationship with Netscape.

I was the editor of The Gilbane Report, Technical Editor of XML.com, and a Seybold Fellow.

Here is an old and outdated copy of my resumé in MS Word format, and here in HTML (converted from MS Word accurately but unglamorously by SoftQuad's HoTMetaL Pro, which is no longer available).

Here are on-line versions of some talks I've given:

At the Fifth International Conference on the World Wide Web: Measuring the Web (this talk won an award for "meritorious research and lively presentation").

At the Perl Conference 2.0: Perl and XML.

At Interlab '96: SGML vs. HTML vs. PDF

At the Second Keio University International Executive Program: Social Impacts of Media Evolution, and Network Society and Business Community.

At Cyber Society and New Business: Advanced Internet Technologies for Business.
