We keep seeing lots of interest in DITA, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture. One sign of growth is the emergence of several regional user groups. Mark Nazimova invites people in the New York City area to a kickoff meeting of NYDUG (the New York DITA Users’ Group).

The first meeting is on Tuesday, September 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at Information Builders’ headquarters at 2 Penn Plaza in Manhattan. The location is directly above Penn Station in midtown Manhattan (24th floor). It’s convenient to most subway lines, LIRR, New Jersey Transit, just down the avenue from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, just down the street from PATH, and two subway stops from Metro North.

Mark asks that you RSVP. If you are coming, he will need to give your name to building security; if you are not coming, he would like to hear from you if you are interested in DITA and in the tri-state area.

We have written about Information Builders and its use of DITA in a white paper, Topic-Oriented Information Development and Its Role in Globalization.
