Shot down in less than a blaze of glory
September 4, 2007
Here’s a recent entry by Andy Updegrove as well as a post on slashdot: ISO says thanks but no thanks to OOXML for now. This is a big relief, but just involves a failure to fast track. I still worry about the future results in the spring.
But for today, it’s Andy FTW by including Microsoft’s press release. I was just watching some Monty Python yesterday and thinking to myself “How in the wide world of sports could they keep a straight face through these skits?” Whatever the answer, Microsoft press writers have figured it out. Do they outsource to the Onion?
Beating the failure stories to the punch by pre-releasing this press article can’t be much different than CNN pre-writing the obituary for Cheney.
