Bruce Chizen, president and CEO of Adobe Systems Inc., addressed the FOSE crowd in a Thursday keynote. He discussed Adobe's approach to using PDF, XML and HTML to increase information sharing across government.
As FOSE exhibitors packed to leave after a three-day run ended Thursday, a new set of exhibitors rolled into town for the next event in the not-quite-completed Washington Convention Center. Visitors to the FOSE show seemed generally pleased at the state of the new meeting center, however, and lauded the staff's efforts to fix the minor problems that occurred.
