I’ve been in Dublin for several days at the CEPIC congress. I presented a paper at the 20o7 conference in Folrence, as part of a call for new functionality in the IPTC schema. (That information was included in th revised IPTC Extended specification, published July 2008).
This annual gathering of worldwide stock agencies is a great place to take the pulse of the industry. No surprise, topics include Microstock, Convergence, and the Google Books project (that’s what I have come here to speak about.)
ASMP has a great presence here, including Richard Kelly (shown below putting some body-english on his iPhone shooting) and the man who is everywhere, Gene Mopsik. Thaks to ASMP and the dpBestflow project for sending me here. Check back for further reports on developments here at CEPIC.
