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.
