UTC (Unicode Technical Committee) #146 meeting that was hosted by IBM in San José from January 25th through 28th, 2016.

For UTC #147, which is being hosted by Adobe this week again in San José, and which is the UTC meeting that takes place right before the release of Unicode Version 9.0, I decided to continue celebrating this important milestone by preparing another cake, whose design is shown below:

Of course, Unicode President and co-founder, Mark Davis, was present at this week's UTC meeting, and Lee Collins happened to attend on the day that we enjoyed the cake:

In closing, I am keeping my fingers crossed that the hosts for UTC #148 and #149 later this year, Microsoft and Apple, respectively, continue this celebratory spirit. 
