Frank Yung-Fong Tang demostrated Project SILA in UNESCO 32nd General Conference, Oct 6-8, 2003, Paris, FranceAuthor: Frank Yung-Fong Tang <email@example.com>
I was invited to UNESCO's General Conference 32nd Session Commission V from Oct 6-8, 2003 in Paris, France to demostrated Project SILA as part of the Initiativel B@bel Project. I represent SIL International as an external consultant for them. (see page 9 of "International Non-Governmental Organizations maintaining formal relations with UNESCO" under SIL International). During that three days, I meet with many govement officials from different countries and gave them my 5-10 minutes presentation of Project SILA. They all see the demostration of using Open Source Mozilla browser to display minority language supported by SIL Graphite. I demostrated Project SILA to Ministre de al Culture of Senegal, delegates from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kenya, Nepal, India, as well as UNESCO employees. I also have chance to speak to delegates from China, Georgia about the SILA and Mozilla project.
The most interesting thing is one week before we arrived, Mrs Laura Bush, First Lady of United States of America, visit the same place and gave a speech about United Stated rejoin UNESCO. I took a picture in the same place she gave here speech. The differences is she have a lot of audiance when she gave that speech and I have no one listen to me while I took that picture.
