Old publications page

This page is redundant now that I’ve put all this material into the welcome post. But everything was here long enough to collect quite a few incoming links, and it costs me nothing to maintain, so I’m leaving it as-is. I probably won’t bother to update it anymore, so for anything more recent than 2012, please see the welcome post.
