This article discusses current and recent developments in Denmark, where open standards have become a central policy issue. Although Denmark is prone for leading the way in true, large-scale openization, a full-blown effort towards these ends is highly unlikely.
That’s the abstract of an article I wrote for translation into Spanish and publication in NovÃ¡tica, the journal of the Spanish CEPIS society ATI, AsociaciÃ³n de TÃ©cnicos de InformÃ¡tica, issue 184 (November-December 2006).
The editor, LlorenÃ§ PagÃ©s, is also Chief Editor of Upgrade, The European Journal for the Informatics Professional, and will also there soon publish an issue about ODF, in which I will have an extended version of my article.
I invite comments on the article. I’m still working on the extended version, and think improvements are possible …
On a side-note, I had to hack WordPress to be able to upload ODF-files within it. Bugger, that should be a standard feature!!
On another side-note, you should be able to use OpenID when leaving your comment.
