Most recently added material (Autumn 2016) is in the ‘KIDMM’ section.

About ‘Conradiator’

I am Conrad Taylor, and this is my personal website for sharing or ‘radiating’ observations on a variety of subjects with which I am involved — including design, information and knowledge management, and environmental responsibility. Increasingly it’s taking on a retrospective documentary (personal and organisational) or historical flavour. It comes with advancing years…

The original construction of this Web site started in mid September 2010, but I let it go to seed in the last few years. In part this neglect has been the result of some distractions, such as having become homeless.

In August 2016 I started to restructure and overhauling the site. It is a place to where I can share thoughts and stories and resources. Actually, it grew out of an original requirement to post PDFs of some old conference papers and monographs, which are still available here under the ‘Resources’ tab above, and will be added to.

Revised structure

In this 2016 makeover I have removed some content categories which no longer make much sense. I’ve extended the ‘Essays’ category to cover reports of events, expanded the kind of resources which I will carry or point to, added a ‘Histories’ section to document some developments to which I have been witness (particularly in information management and publishing), and added a section about Knowledge, Information, Data and Metadata Management (‘KIDMM’).

There is a backlog of material which I want to place on the site, and hope this can be accomplished before too long.
