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

Thank you, Laurent. Although the torch has been passed (or will have been come 1 January, our symbolic transition date), the memory muscle will keep siding with Truth, Justice, and The DITA Way. The World Wide Web is still a rude place for intelligent content. Watch this space.

Kristen has proven her ability to herd Technical Cats (isn't that what the C in TC is for?) towards firm schedules. It's been a delight to work with her.

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,
