Not to mention that most of your tiredness is caused by working, so companies should clearly be paying you to sleep.

Yes, and that explains why the open source movement is actually a necessity and why so many commercial enterprises support it. But for commercial products, the need to sell seats does warp product design.

Isn't it supposed to be both? And one by means of the other?

So does old research. What John Carroll showed about learner behavior in The Nurnberg Funnel should be applied equally to purchasing behavior, which is, after all, a learning behavior. Learning ain't linear, in any context.

And it has to have a viable economic model: a way to charge more for more usage, which vastly favors interactive over batch functionality. Design to sell seats -- which is often inimical to both ease of development and correct runtime characteristics.

Is Single-Sourcing Dead? (Spoiler: no. But it's a complex issue, as explains.)

A structured writing schema is exactly that: a semantically labeled template. My point is that you can drive all your other processes from those semantics as well, radically simplifying authoring environment. Book explains in detail.

One of the many reasons why it pays to author in the subject domain from the beginning rather than trying to add semantic labeling later.

The ease of building that tool is almost entirely dependent on the format of your source content and the precision of the semantic labeling of that source. Accurately locating the content to apply the label to is 98% of the battle.

If your semantics are based in the subject domain, then it is simply a terminology mapping problem. Same subject, different name. Automation easy. Public standards will typically be less precise than yours, so no loss in the conversation.

Definitely convert to other formats. Publication formats are complex, but we can factor out most of that complexity in the subject domain, then convert to different publication formats as required. There are tools for that.

So the question is no longer, "Can I add subject-domain semantics in Flare or Paligo?" but, "If I do subject-domain semantic markup, do I still need Flare or Paligo?"

Semantic templates are essentially what subject-domain structured writing is about, but instead of adding subject labels to document structures, you create subject structures from which you can drive most of publishing and content management functions. ...

Biggest change since you saw it is probably the much greater emphasis on rhetoric. Thanks for the feedback and thanks for the kind words.

Had a peek at this last year when it was still under development. Very much looking forward to reading the final work! Mark is always thought-provoking, but this book takes a bigger, more balanced view than some of his earlier blog posts. Highly recommended.
