Tim Bray's weblog

Tim Bray
It's great to see Tim Bray's blog come online. Being Tim, he has of course turned it into an experiment in literate programming:
ongoing is a project simultaneously in writing and programming; I write the entries and in parallel fiddle with the software that publishes it. This is a pretty involving experience and there aren't that many of us in the world who get to enjoy it. [ ongoing]
True enough. I remember when I first learned about Don Knuth's literate programming suite -- Web, Tangle, and Weave. There might have been a dozen people on the planet who could think and write simultaneously in a programming language (Pascal) and a typesetting language (TeX). Happily, in the weblog era, scripting languages and HTML have enabled a lot more of us to play the game. Anyway...welcome to blogspace, Tim!
