Got wind of an interop event next week. Looks like it is about document standards, but it is not entirely clear. After the way MS bought the ISO to make ooxml an ISO standard, now they go around talking about interoperability. Notice that no one from the ODF world is on the list of speakers? Very interoperable I must say. I am sure MS has filed a software patent on how to clap with one hand. Interesting to note that IDA CTO is delivering the opening keynote. What kinds of interoperability principles could they possibly be pushing? No, I have not yet been invited.
