Heya, this would be a killer opportunity to get someone into this
position that could help promote open standards, CC, etc internally.
Please contact me if you would like an introduction for this job.
Just to reiterate, Gunar is the XMP product manager at adobe who
released the XMP toolkit under a bsd license which has empowered eXMPi,
liblicense and other apps. It would be a cool gig.
