The London Times on OpenDocument

Gervase Markham of the Mozilla Foundation has a short piece in The London Times today recapping why it's important to have open standards around our data; he also flags the significance of Massachusetts.
Open formats are an important part of computing freedom (although alone they are not sufficient) because they give people full control of their own data. In future years, when this freedom is commonplace, I predict that the Massachusetts Decision will be seen as the turning point.
