I just got back from Austin, Texas, where I testified yesterday before both Senate and House committees considering the Texas legislation on open document formats. It was both a pleasure and a privilege to do so, and something I’ll remember for a long, long time.
Those of you who have been reading this blog can guess the sorts of things I said regarding the need for open formats and documents. Indeed, I and many others have been talking about this topic for more than two years. If I get around to it, I’ll clean up and publish the text of what I was supposed to say (in both cases I varied from what I had prepared).
Update: I’ve now published the text.
