Hello and welcome!

Norman Walsh maintains this site. It used to be for publishing software and resources but, twenty odd years in [yes, twenty!], those are mostly distributed elsewhere. There’s some archival stuff here and a few odds and ends. The activity stream is the only thing that’s regularly updated. Enjoy your stay. If you're interested in the stuff here, you may also be interested in norm's weblog. Or not. Only you can decide.

You can also find norm on Twitter, GitHub, Flickr (but see also his own site), the book of face (rarely), LinkedIn, Google+, and probably a dozen other places too.

And now, for your amusement:
