I’ve been invited to this workshop (cool, a personal invite!), and though it’s on the other side of the country, I would really like to be there. Don’t know yet if I can make it though.
Part of the press release reads,
“Peter Quinn served as Chief Information Officer and Director of the Massachusetts Information Technology division for 4 years. (2002 – 2006). As CIO, Quinn was responsible for setting information technology standards and policy for the state of Massachusetts. Quinn is most well known for initiating Massachusetts’ transition to OpenDocument Format. Mr. Quinn came to public service following a successful career in private sector IT, most recently as the CIO for Boston Financial Data Services.
SCALE’s workshop on OpenDocument format will take place on February 10, 2006. The event will begin at 1 pm with Mr. Quinn’s keynote presentation. Other speakers in the workshop will include:
- Douglas Heintzman (Director, Technical Strategy – IBM)
- J David Eiserberg (OpenDocument Fellowship)
- Gary Edwards (OpenDocument Fellowship)”
