DITA 2007 West: Day 3

Had some great conversations with France Baril and Yas Ettesam on a wide variety of topics including DTD development and maintenance, data and process modelling, observations and trends in publishing - definitely very interesting.

Scott and I gave our presentation on our proposed DocStandards Interoperability Framework. We got great feedback from France and Eric Hennum. The main purpose of the presentation was to stimulate some interest and further discussion on enabling interchange between disparate standards, and we accomplished what we set out to do. The next step is to use the momentum we got from this conference and start the process of making this an OASIS Technical Committee.

Overall, a very good conference. I met some really sharp people that I'll definitely hope to keep in touch with.

On to OpenPublish in Baltimore...
