OpenDocument Fellowship Petition

My social technology class has been looking at the OpenDocument issue that has eyebrows raised in Massachusetts. The students (and I) are doing research on the various opinions and reasons around either rejection or acceptence of a standard, fully open format for office documents.

Sure enough, I'm informed of a gem by one student. He points out this site. There has been a lot of talk around supporting this move to ODF for some time now but I was not aware that a petition by the OpenDocument Fellowship even existed. That is, until the student taught the teacher.

So please, if you support data integrity and a level playing field for office applications, sign here. If you're not sure, learn more from the OpenDocument Fellowship.
