This is my view of the Internet at this point. I use it for finding information about SGML, Information Mapping, and other interests. My profession right now is working as a Data Architect on an SGML implementation at West Group.
I've been interested in SGML ever since I first was introduced to it by Scott Fischer while we were both working at Unisys Corporation. Since then, I've enjoyed seeing the technology pay off in the areas it is best suited for: industrial-capacity publishing systems. It isn't good for everything, only where it is practical. (Isn't that really the case for all technology?)
As the President of the Midwest SGML/XML Forum, I try to bring the people using XML mostly,
and also sometimes SGML, together to discuss issues. It is a non-profit company...this
seems to be a great resource for many people locally. Check it out at our website at
to find out more.

This is a question that has no complete answer. But there's a collection of information in my resume that contains information about my background.
The entity known as "Daniel R. Dodge" may be in one of several places (although always as the original, never replicated). Actually resolving the reference may require use of multiple queries. The following search path is suggested:
