At the HIMSS '99 tradeshow, HL7 had two booths--one for CCOW and one to show prototypes of our work with XML. Wes has been involved in both projects and was the coordinator for the XML booth, along with Liora Alschuler.

Wes had his trusty Kodak DC-120 along and made a few snapshots. Click on the thumbnails for larger versions of the pictures.

Another booth scene. The yellow vendor badges are a good sign: they are our customers as much as the providers.
