And another thing
Not content with creating fire (Fire!) I also did this. With a lot of help from Rob. And Anna and Gilly and James. Looks like a normal (although unusually beautiful, granted) AI, you say. But did you know it was created by exporting bibliographic data from our one-version-of-the-truth ONIX database (thanks to the wonderful anko), put through an xslt transform (in freeware cooktop) and modified with a .css style sheet? Now all the code is done I have to click just five times - compared to spending at least a morning doing it manually. Nifty.
A few years ago, back in the days when I was a normal, ground-down, time-starved employee, I feared computers. Now they are my friends.
