One of our top programmers, Parker Abercrombie, represented OVC at the National Institute of Standards and Technology workshop on Common Data Formats, OCT 30.
OVC has been pushing for Open Source and Open Standards for some years now. By all accounts, our presentation there was very well received.
The slides used are available here in PDF format . You can find presentation slides for the workshop presenters at NIST. 
Thanks to Parker and thanks for all OVC supporters that helped make this happen.
