Standards Australia did me the honour of inviting me to join the Australian delegation to the DIS 29500 Ballot Resolution Meeting in Geneva, and this time I accepted. I can resist anything except temptation and I hope I can catch up with some old friends during the week and do some productive work.
As part of this, Standards Australia have asked me to put off blogging on the subject of OOXML and the BRM for the duration. So I too have an OOXML Purdah!
Standards Australia has issued two press releases. SA Statement on OOXML BRM gives an overview of the process. Standards Australia’s Delegation to OOXML Meeting is a response to a New Zealand ComputerWorld article concerning me.
(Reporters, please contact Standards Australia not me.)
(Readers: I have disabled the blog comments for the duration, because I would not be able to respond to them due to the Standards Australia request and the bounds of civility. There are predictably wild things being said about this by the usual suspects. You can get some idea of the issues from the comments and responses to my recent blogs.)
