[ba-unrev-talk] introduction (was Re: ICADL call for short papers)

Speaking of DLI-II, now seems to be a good time to introduce myself.  I
can't remember what I was looking for when I stumbled across the list the
other day, but I've been inspired by Dr. Engelbart's work for a long time
now and I'm happy to see if there's some way I might participate.    (01)

I'm currently on research staff with the Alexandria Digital Library at UC
Santa Barbara, in the digital earth group specifically.  My professional
interests include advanced (and/or wacky :)) interfaces, knowledge
organization, information visualization and hypertext systems.  My
occasionally up to date homepage here at the project is    (02)

http://www.alexandria.ucsb.edu/~ancona/    (03)

There are links there to the paper and slides I recently presented at the
JCDL (Portland) workshop on information visualization; the slides may not
make much sense, but the paper is a decent enough overview of some of the
recent thinking of the group here.    (04)

Before joining this project about a year ago, I worked at a couple of
different startups in the bay area, including (briefly) one of my own.
See vizbang.com for a few more details on this.  Vizbang was headed
towards eventually being a general visualization based front end for a
hypertext system (ergo the Ted Nelson quote on the front page there); it
ended up being a bit more of an engineering challenge than I thought it'd
be, but I still think it's got potential.  I'm on an only slightly
divergent track with what I'm working on here and will probably end up
implementing some of the ideas I had there eventually.    (05)

Nice to be here, and I'm looking forward to an interesting collaboration
with you all.    (06)
