Following the OOXML Story · From the beginning of the story up to last week’s crucial vote, it seemed that <a href='http://www.consortiuminfo.org/standardsblog/'>Andy Updegrove’s blog</a> was the best place to follow this story. I think that as of now, the man to read would be <a href='http://www.adjb.net/index.php'>Alex Brown</a>; in particular, check out his authoritative <a href='http://www.adjb.net/index.php?entry=entry070909-104641'>OOXML ballot comments</a> and <a href='http://www.adjb.net/index.php?entry=entry070906-201933'>OOXML - what just happened?</a>. He’s also maintaining chunks of the moving-target <a href='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Open_XML'>OOXML Wikipedia entry</a>. For an interesting sidelight, though, see David Berlind’s <a href='http://blogs.zdnet.com/Berlind/?p=762'>ZDNet reader: Don’t let OOXML vs. ODF shenanigans tarnish other standards setters</a>; useful perspective, I’d say. And then for the real absolute unvarnished truth, check out Steve’s <a href='http://www.1060.org/blogxter/entry?publicid=65EE8DD9471C1AB557BBDC46E51EBBF2'>ISO document standards</a>.
