    There’s a market for Viagra for limp mind and soul, should someone invent it.

    This seems like a perfect time to remind these politicians exactly who it is they’re supposed to be working for.

    Simple, lovely ideas like open standards, free software and net neutrality always seem so complicated in the eyes of politicians. Chill out guys, find some 21st Century love.

    From the article: ‘judging by a leaked version of the near-final result’ – so, this is not final, or approved. The original article, sadly, offers no clue as to what parts of the approval process remain or who to lobby though I would start by following the lead of http://www.openrightsgroup.org/ .

    EU defines the glass as being half full.

    I’ve also read about further shenanigans in the MS OOXML spec, where the packed committee has been changing the definition retroactively, now that they made it a ‘standard.’ Disgusting.
