March meeting - Cat DV & metadata links

Cosy as we were in our new home even higher up in Whiteladies Road, wefcpug brains were as sharp as ever to spot that when John Donne wrote 'Song' in the 17th Century he had metadata in mind.

Links from Phil's discourse are:

www.spherico.com home of xml2text and other practical apps for handling XML

www.xmedit.com for Traffic - the node-based editing app (ie looks like the Shake interface)

http://developer.apple.com/appleapplications/fcpxml.html is where to find the (slightly dated) Apple view on XML and FCP

Kevin Duggan showed off Cat DV - Ken Bell's company Quad Logic are the local source for that - and thanks to Kevin and Ken for organising the demo on Monday night.

Thanks to all who came, and asked such intelligent questions. Even more thanks to those who came and gave intelligent answers. We do it all over again on Monday April 16th - and don't forget there'll be a free raffle on that and following meetings. With luck and a following wind, there'll be another 'Out Of Vision' wefcpod podcast in the intervening time, to help you while away the Easter holiday.
