:: grepninjalog ::GrepNinja's weblog is a somewhat ordered collection of thoughts and resources mostly related to software engineering. It simply tracks what GrepNinja finds technologically useful, interesting, or amusing at some given point in time. Warning: high techno-geek factor!

MicroArray Explorer -- "The Microarray Explorer (MAExplorer) is a Java-based data-mining facility for cDNA microarray databases. It may be freely downloaded and run as a stand-alone application on your computer, or run as an applet in your Web browser. The exploratory data analysis environment provides tools for the data-mining of quantitative cDNA expression profiles across multiple microarrays."

An article at Info@Vis has proclaimed the demise of the old NewsMaps technology. The article also talks about a new, similar technology, Vios, which claims to put the Internet in 3D. Grepninja finds these new visualization technologies very promising.

TechSetters is an IBM resource "for UNIX trendsetters."
Schematron - "The Schematron is a language and toolkit for making assertions about patterns found in XML documents. It can be used as a friendly validation language and for automatically generating external annotation (links, RDF, perhaps Topic Maps). Because it uses paths rather than grammars, it can be used to assert many constraints that cannot be expressed by DTDs or XML Schemas." -- quoted from the Resource Directory (RDDL) for Schematron 1.5 page.
Things are a bit slow here on GrepNinjaLog these days. Due to a 30% staff reduction at his previous company, GrepNinja is currently looking to put his skills to work for the right San Diego area company. The job search does not leave much time for technology research.
