My name is Jan Schreiber, and this is my blog.
I’ve been publishing on the Web since 1997, and jschreiber.com, registered in 1998, had become my personal playground for Web experiments. After a server crash in 2007 my homepage went down, and I was surprised to find out that my live continued as if nothing had happened. After a year or so, I longed back for the good old days of personal web publishing, so here we go. Special thanks go to Vanja for the fantastic headache-logo!
Since 2005, I’ve been working as a developer for the Norwegian company Ravn. One of my main interests is Topic Maps, an ISO standard for information representation and interchange of knowledge. Other than semantic technologies, I love to implement all kinds of standards, including OAI-PMH, NORLOM, AdConnexion, and other weird stuff. Web standards rock!
I became a full-time dad in 2006, so there’s not much time for time-consuming pet projects any more. In my spare time I like to take photos, and some of them are available at my page at smugmug. Some of my other interests are hiking and collecting and studying bugs.
Why on earth do I blog? you might wonder. Well, why are you reading this? For the 10 past years I’ve been using my homepage as a personal notebook, where I post code snippets, ideas and other stuff that I might want to look up later. The Internet Archive has become a good friend of mine.
I you’d like to contact, you can find me on some of the popular social networks. You might want to contact me via my profiles on LinkedIn or Xing, or you might drop me a note at mail (at) jschreiber (dot) com.
