Universal Business Language
Prof. Jane Winn presented Jon Bosak of Sun Microsystems, who informed many of us who are interested in the development of the Universal Business Language -- An implementation of XML designed to form a common set of business contracting documents.
For a quick bit of fun, check out the international form of their data dictionary, with over 600 standard business terms translated over 6 different languages. (Jon left it to the lawyers and others to try and figure out what happens if people disagree on the translations!)
