Re: Happy 10th

When Jeremy gave the summary talk at the Pickford Center when OCIO was under consideration for an Academy Sci-Tech award. Richard Edlund did the introductions of all the speakers, and he pronounced it "Open Colorio", coloor-ee-oh, rhymes with the name Victorio. 

To this day, that's how it sounds in my head every time I see it written down.

Happy anniversary!

A huge thanks to everyone who has helped with its creation and adoptiontion.  And a double thanks to those working today to keep it going strong.

A little known bit of OCIO history...  I had originally named it "OpenColorSpace", but Malcolm Humphreys kindly pointed out it was a terrible name.

Here's the original thread:

His first response was asking which monitor probes it will support, which I then had to go through and explain what OCS is trying to achieve and what that would mean for productions at DrD (ie for DrD this doesn't replace truelight or cinespace, just compliments them).

Nice suggestions, Malcolm! :)
