Schnapps & Cheese
I spent last Thursday and Friday in Zurich - Switzerland, to attend a general meeting of the Ghent PDF Workgroup
. This is a great initiative that describes itself as a 'Premiere Graphic Arts Think-Tank'. A lot of interesting people and great minds sit around the table to collaborate on creating and testing international specifications for the graphical arts business. This results in specifications best practices, test suites, white papers, etc...
XPS is an important new development in this area, and NiXPS was allowed 'observer status' - which basically allowed me to participate in the various meetings. This was unique opportunity to talk to a lot of people about XPS.
Also, XPS was discussed during the Office Documents sub comittee meeting, and I'm looking forward in participating further in this great initiative.
And about the Schnapps & Cheese ... We were invited for a typical swiss diner (kindly offered by PDF-X Ready and VSD). A cheese fondue, and afterwards a lot of Schnapps - Ganz toll!
