Reflection on Santa Fe

I must admit after last year's excellent CIDM Best Practices conference, this year's event in Santa Fe was a little disappointing.

I didn't really hear anything new from the presentations, while the networking and side conversations seemed somewhat subdued. I had a couple of good productive pre-arranged one-on-one meetings, but otherwise there was no real discernible "buzz" about this year's event.

Difficult to say why, as that's more of a subjective feeling than an objective observation.

One thing that did surprise me was the fact of how many people still overlook both the importance of graphics, and the impact of the whole publishing process once the content has been created.

Creating good technical documentation is not just about authoring and content management.
