Subject: Re: Thank you for helping make the world a better place

I second Laurent's message Don and Kris. Watching the DITA TC work on this remarkable standard and wrestle to make it simultaneously comprehensive and comprehensible to a broadly diversified community of adopters and users is inspiring. I am amazed at how much you have been able to do together and how much you continue to do. Don, thanks for your leadership getting everyone here and Kris, thank you for continuing to lead the community. 

Best regards,

Dear Don and Kristen,
Don first: I hear you're stepping down after many years of inspired chairmanship on the DITA TC. Thank you for helping make DITA one of the important standards in the authoring world. In our line of work it's easy to forget that what we do is transformational: we get tired of those eyes glazing over when we try to communicate our enthusiasm about standards and interoperability, and why it matters so much. The truth remains that without the tireless efforts of standards proponents, the world would remain a Tower of Babel and very little would or even could get done.
Kristen: thank you for stepping in and carrying the torch forward.
OASIS Staff deeply appreciates your commitment and what you've already accomplished. Let us know how we can support you in achieving even more.
With all of our gratitude,
