Just Build It. Wise words from Duncan Mackenzie:Stop debating this issue; pick a language and build something… you'll feel better…. [Incessant Ramblings]

this is frequently my approach. Today i was talking with Len Hatfield about the CATH's watermark project and i told him, you know it doesn't matter who has done what before, if you get the dtd for the IPH standard done, and give it to everyone else, then you become the leader. Likewise, if you make the bit of software that you think that you need, you can just by doing it, become the person in the field. Now for Paper Historians, we might be talking a smaller field, but overall the concept is the same.
