Calling all TEI enthusiasts...
Around the start of July I posted a note here asking for introductory
essays about the TEI to be included in a special edition of the journal
Text Technology. I'm glad to say I've had four or five offers from all
sorts of unlikely and interesting quarters already -- but there's still
time to send yours in!
In my original note I said I'd like to provide some evidence that the
TEI is not just for seriouly committed technoids. Which meant that I
wanted short, accessible, and (preferably) enthusiastic essays
containing any of the following:
-- case studies derived from real life experience of applying the
Guidelines in any area
-- analysis of the long term significance of the Guidelines
-- critical discussion of weakness or inadequacy in the current TEI
-- suggestions for future TEI developments
-- "how to get started" style introductions to the use of the
Guidelines in particular application areas
After much agonising, I've now decided to set a deadline and here it is:
(drum roll) ... 1st September 94 (St Giles Day).
I'll be away from the net for the next couple of weeks, but will be
nagging all likely contributors immediately thereafter...
