I wanted to post this before the ISWC got underway.

When I was in College, the half-life of an engineering degree was said to be five years.  Half of the (new) technology vocabulary would be obsolete in five years.  This may be better or worse in some disciplines, but still largely true for the foreseeable future.  This is not just a problem for STEM Graduates, but for the young who don't know and for the retired no longer connected to full time work and the familiarity with new technology that brings.

Security concerns around Cross-Platform Validation were never "solved" so much as overcome.  So, Pencil & Paper (manual editing) is not a new Luddism, it is simply transparentcy which may highlight and mitigate risks from predatory behavior unforeseen but for continueing education.

Social Networking, Linked Data and the Semantic Web are by no means immune.  The concept of retroactive bad choices is not itself very old, as bad a concept as it is turning out to be.


I posted Pencil & Paper examples for StratML, with XHTML 1.0 ... ADMS used XHTML 1.1

Where confidentiality requirements are temporary a complex, ready-for-anything firewall can be replaced by inside source control generated XML.  This can be brought home, commented, marked up, validated, spell checked, etc. then taken back to work stripped of commentary, tagged marginalia and checked back in.  None of this requires any modification of the specifications (W3C or even IETF) or third-party supervision.

An example of an ADMS Repository is here:  http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/xsd/egADMS/

I have similar documentation for MODS, JATS, StratML etc. as mentioned below.

Hi Phil and All,


Using Xerces, I've been able to validate (entirely off-line) XML Documents in the following formats:  StratML, JATS Journal Publishing (ANSI), JATS Article 
Authoring (ANSI), MODS (US LOC), DWML (NOAA) as well as embedded 
versions in XHTML 1.1.  As soon as I am able to publish examples I will 
(along with a zip file containing the interlinked XSD Sxhema.  This 
method is not as "good" as DTD's, but it is much smaller and gets the 
basics right.

If I were going to add ADMS XML as an example, which flavor would you suggest ?  Please don't say "all of them" unless you have too much money cluttering up your desk :-)
