With wife, Ela, freezing at the summit of a Hong-Kong mountain, March 2006.
Hello, and welcome to my webpages.
On these web pages, you can find out who I am, what I'm doing, and how
to contact me. If you have a username and password from us, such as
from a christmas card, you can go news.markellison.net
our latest news. There's a good chance that it'll include an account
of what the local quendas
have been up to.
My work involves helping people with their computing needs, especially
with websites. For one client, I build sizeable online shops. For
another, I combine site maintenance and setting up new
content-management systems with processing log files and occasional
development. For a third, I data-mined information on competitors and
potential customers. If you have a computing need: creating, fixing,
upgrading or improving, your website, data-mining, or software
development, perhaps I can help you.
In part, I work as an IT consultant to provide both money and time for
my academic interests. These interests lie within Cognitive Science,
and focus on modelling language, marking up texts, learning, and
non-dualist philosophy and reasoning. For more details, click on the
Research tab above.
When not doing work or research, I surf the web, watch my MythTV box,
maintain my MythTV box, potter around the house, dream up schemes for
digital control of the house, learn languages, dream up schemes to
automate language-learning, tend to the garden, dream up schemes for
computer-controlled garden maintenance.
And I also spend time in Zen
meditation. No scheme to automate that ... yet.
