We've always kinda figured, from the beginning, that it would be useful to have some kind of geographic representation of Harry's whereabouts over time. But it hasn't been a terribly high priority, and I, for one, have been dreading being asked to figure out the technology that would make this possible; I don't really know the first thing about mapping. Fortunately, no-one told any of Naomi's students about my dread, and one of them is curious about Harry's travels. So, away we go.

Proofreading is a big concern over here at the Harry Watkins Diary shop. I believe both Naomi and I have already written a bit about it on these pages. Because we're using XML markup (in accordance with the TEI Guidelines, we hope), the text that we are faced with proofreading may suffer from an especially wide variety of faults.
