About DITA per Day

I've been long involved with the DITA specification (more formally called the OASIS Darwin Information Typing Architecture), and had the privilege of helping it grow: writing the first stylesheet that actually demonstrated the feasibility of class-substring-based lookup, creating some of the first uses of the architecture for collaboration and dynamic DITA publishing, managing the specification through the standards process, creating user groups and forums, developing community tools and guidelines, and watching DITA's adoption far beyond what its creators imagined when it was first announced in 2001.

DITA turned out to be not only a new wave, but a virtual tsunami in the writing industry. The DITA per Day blog repesents my reflections on the standard, its origin, and its promotion into new uses and communities.
