6 Announcements
- All



7 Agenda Items
- Todd
7. Web vs ftp vs Google Group vs Wiki pages: some documents are not easy to post on Wiki pages, some companies don’t provide access to ftp sites, etc. John asked for comments on difficulties with the use of these. Comments included success with the ability to use Filezilla or help from company IT to access ftp. GGs seem to work for WGs while developing materials, and use of ftp for the more widely distributed document. John Garguilo noted difficulty in identifying the latest version on the ftp site. Dates in the document title don’t always indicate the latest. Also, there is difficulty finding documents. Todd suggested an Action Item to develop a Wiki page for this purpose.
8. WHIT was introduced. John Rhoads indicated that Philips may be interested.
*Preliminary agenda for F2F: suggestions were to start with PC, follow with Showcase, WGs and finally TC. Todd indicated this will be developed over the next few weeks.


  • Manny to ask Lisa if the Barcelona WHIT is the once a year program and what is happening in Asia. Move to PC.


  • John Rhoads and Manny will address this.
