Back in Belgium and on the Bike

So since about two weeks, I’m back in Belgium! The DiXiT postdoc in Sweden has run its course, and now I’m working at the University of Antwerp again. More on that soon – but the long and short of it is that I’ve moved back home, and was very happy to return to Annelies (and our…

Validation schema v9.0 now online

Today, we uploaded a new version of the BDMP‘s custom TEI schema to the website (both in ODD and compact RelaxNG formats). The new schemata carry the version number 9.0. The changes are minor, and XML files that were validated against v8.0 should validate correctly agains v9.0 as well. The vocabulary has been expanded a little to…

Post-Boat Odyssey from Gothenburg (industrial harbor) to Borås

This is an edited translation into English of a letter I wrote to my father while I was trying to get from Gothenburg to Borås, after docking in Gothenburg’s industrial harbour.

The Boat from Ghent to Gothenburg

As I already indicated in my previous post — which already dates back a couple of months, sorry for that! — a busy schedule has delayed this post quite a lot. But it’s finally here. I hope you’ll enjoy! At the end of April, I went back home to Belgium, to get the last of…

Update

I just haven’t been doing all of it here, on Bytes & Bikes. I’ve written two guest blogs on other websites, that you’re more…

The Start of the DiXiT Postdoc

Or: Wout går till Sverige Two days ago, Annelies and I packed our bags, boarded a plane, and set off to Sweden. To Gothenburg Landvetter, to be exact — departing in Deurne instead of Zaventem due to the tragic events that took place in Brussels only last week. Still, we try to move on, and as it was such a beautiful…

CfP Flyer DiXiT3 + ESTS 2016

In Cologne, the DiXiT 2 conference is drawing to a close, as the last half day of talks has started. It’s been a great conference so far, with a rich social programme and a series of very interesting talks. And I’m especially looking forward to Arianna Ciula’s closing keynote on Modelling Textuality. Something to look…

MTB – 27 Feb 2016

First ride again in almost two months. So much for that good start of the year! Bad weather and busy schedules — no excuse, I know. Since I was using my MTB again, I decided to take a detour on the way to (and back from) Mechelen, across a patch of MTB terrain I’ve had my…
