Sam Wilmott — a Mulberry Associate
Sam Wilmott started using markup languages in the late ’60s. Since then he has led the development of typesetting/text-formatting systems for the Canadian Government Printing Office and for a major real-estate company, implemented one of the first SGML parsers (which was also the first pull-model markup parser), and is the originator of the OmniMark programming language with its strong support of SGML, XML, and text transformation. He’s also worked in the XSLT world: he has contributed to the implementation of an XSLT compiler and has worked as an XSLT programmer and analyst.
Nowadays Sam is mostly enjoying retirement on the Canadian West Coast but is still interested in how markup languages are processed and is thinking about where that might go in the future.
