This page is the home of my Tibetan related software and font projects. Most of these projects were developed between 1998 and 2001. I am currently too busy with other avenues of my life to work on these projects, but I do plan to come back to them as soon as time allows. In the meantime, I would appreciate any feedback or thoughts you might have. I am also open to cooperation and possible funding offers.
My approach to Tibetan computing is fairly anthropological in nature, with a focus on bridging the gap between language data and learning material. If I have a dictionary I want to be able to draw material from it for quizzing. If I have a Tibetan text I want to be able to speed read it and create comprehension tests. Spoken dialects, especially Amdo, are also close to my heart. If it is true that most of Tibetan computing is preoccupied with the worthy enterprise of digitizing classical texts, then I feel closer to the fieldworker and student of Tibetan who desire more powerful tools to work with the language itself.
My other main interest is Tibetan typography and typeface design, which I hope to pursue at greater length in the future.
This section contains programs that I have officially released.
These programs range from early experiments to software waiting to be released. Some of them are not available for the public, some can be obtained by requesting a personal copy.
