Re: [xml-dev] Re: Balisage 2017


I admire your taking the effort to avoid countries and hubs but
"solidarity" that adversely impacts my friends and not true villains
isn't on my agenda.

Rather than doing something, anything, I have fallen in with several
technology oriented groups who are working to have an impact. Whether
they will or not, being in the future, is always uncertain. But it is
more than praying (which I recommend) and being in "solidarity."

Hope you are at the start of a great week!
