My recent speech in DSC-2007
Title: Interactive Software Paradigms for Statistical
It's mostly about Taligent Model-View-Presenter, a paradigm that takes
2 minutes to understand the basics but years to learn enough details to
actually write a program using it.
You can get the speech and the slides in here.
Also available is the colour chooser
program which I used to demonstrate some concepts during the
speech. The program itself is less than useful but it aims to
help me understand some of the control flows of Taligent MVP as
suggested/implied/speculated (due to some missing details) in the
original paper by Potel. The work is still under (slow)
The application will only work under Linux at the moment however.
Worse still, without enough experience and a testing machine to work
on, it may happen that the program will only work on Fedora Core (I'm
using 4 and 6). In fact, any suggestions on making it more
cross-platform would be most welcomed.

Managing Large Latex Documents
is my initial attempt to manage a large latex document. I found
that file separation has to go to the section level because one chapter
of a thesis can be some 60 pages -- a pretty large document
indeed. The problem comes to the \include command.
You want to use it because you may just want to send several chapters
of the thesis to someone, and to your dismay you find that \include
cannot be nested within documents. This means you can only
separate files at the chapter level. But then, because you'd
seldom give someone a single section of the chapter, it would then be
OK to use \input instead. The above link will show you how to.
