My email queue has been full this week with appeals related to Open Document Format.
First, from the IDLELO list I was notified about a new Document Freedom Day trying to capitalize on the worldwide awareness event we know and love as Software Freedom Day. I've been a supporter (and strategist) for ODF for many years now, and it tickles me to think that it has grown to the point of meriting its own commemorative day. Now if they could just move it to the same day as the annual SF Pillow Fight!
Then today my pal Zaheda pointed out that she's contributing (finally) to Google's blog. View her contribution about ODF and the impending ISO vote here. I've been bugging Zaheda to blog for a long time now. She's spent much of the last six months keeping close track of the ISO process for psuedo-open OOXML. Nice to see her finally reporting out a bit about what she's been up to (and Open Document Format continues to be the single most important tool in forcing MSFT to stop holding their customers hostage with file formats). You Go, Girl!
