He opened NoSmoke in 2000 and manages NoSmoke.
Welcome June, I'm very happy that you joined. I'm about to leave (until sunday), so I hope the team will care for you and NoSmoke needs. Please feel free to refactor the system. Could you develop a plan for our offer to the asian part of the wiki world to be joined to the bus system with NoSmoke as connection wiki? I hope you are fine. Feel at home in the TourBus-team. -- HelmutLeitner
Dear June, IMHO - although this hasn't been discussed in the BusManagement - the place of NoSmoke is clearly also in the GRAND-WIKI-COMMUNITY-TOUR. The only thing that lets me hesitate is that some HTML-Header-Information (IIRC charset) has been stripped at NoSmoke, so that e.g. my IE - that was perfectly able to display the beautiful Korean characters - doesn't display them anymore. The effect is that I see a a lot of junk characters. -- hl
I have set the charset again -- there are some tradeoffs therein. Korean alphabets can be combine to represent a letter in a few tens of thousands of ways. However, before unicode came, they used a very small set of already combined letters on the computer -- not more than a few thousands. Modern web browsers have the capability of displaying all possible combinations of Korean alphabets, but when we set a charset as we used to, it can't display the other letters left out from the pre-fixed set(well, the left letters are somewhat rarely used though). When we set no specific charset, the browser will display all combinations. It is wrong. But we have to use unicode to solve the problem, and it makes another problem. We are to move into unicode anyway after all, though.
I have recently interviewed WardCunningham and it was so mind-opening and thought-provoking. I will post it on the internet soon. It was mainly about his current works, WikiWiki, FIT, XP, values, writings, etudes, patterns, programming paradigms, languages and so on.
I think so too. I'll post it on the internet by next Tuesday. 1) Some of my friends read the interview and I heard they were so impressed that they read it over and over again. 2) International Wiki Conference would be great. How could we make it happen? --JuneKim
