Note for non-Washington DC natives: North Bethesda has nothing to do with Bethesda, MD. The conference venue is at the White Flint Metro station in Rockville, Maryland.
Description
Balisage is an annual conference devoted to the theory and practice of descriptive markup and related technologies for structuring and managing information. The 2015 program includes case studies from journal publishing, regulatory compliance systems, and large-scale document systems; formatting XML for print and browser-based print formatting; visualizing XML structures and documents. Technical papers cover such topics as: MathML; XSLT; use of XML in government and the humanities; XQuery; design of authoring systems; uses of markup that vary from poetry to spreadsheets to cyber justice; and hyperdocument link management. The conference will be preceded by a one-day symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup.

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
