Welcome to the Personal Project Pages for Mark J. Norton.

At any given point in time, I'm involved in many different projects, some under contract, others that I'm doing for my own enjoyment or learning. I'd like to use this space to share some of that work with you. Feel free to comment any page, but I'd rather you didn't change the page contents without talking to me first.
