Hibernation

Assuming anyone is still reading or subscribed to the RSS feed, you have probably noticed the marked lack of updates. There are a variety reasons for this. One is that I joined the compiler team at LogicBlox in January. As such, I am not really doing all that much typesetting or typographical sorts of things these days. Though I have been recently learning the joys of trying to produce HTML and PDF output from a DocBook source and have both look remotely reasonable. As for type systems, well, I've been doing some of that, and may be doing quite a bit more in the near future. But rather than worrying about whether I may say too much, I'm just saying nothing about that for maximal peace of mind.

So at this point I wouldn't expect much more anytime soon. I have contemplated simply shutting the site down to further simplify my life, but there is still a steady readership for my LaTeX and fonts tutorial according to the analytics.

There was some renewed interest in my document Typographic Style for Computer Scientists on Reddit yesterday, so maybe I will finally take some time to produce a new draft of that soonish.

    Wow, an update! I had heard at ICFP that you were at LogicBlox; I think last I heard from you was when you were still in Europe.

    Thanks for the update on your life. Don’t shut the site down, your past posts have value as archive resource. For example I’m sure many ppl find the LaTeX font tutorials enlightening. And then, who knows, in 1-2 years time you might feel like posting new things.
