Woot. I checked every day since the first for a new update, because I am quite fond of these podcasts you’ve got running Jeremy, so I’ll begin with that and say thanks. :-)

I found your analysis of the the ODT acceptance into the Massachusetts government good, staying quite neutral as always. I personally think it is completely unfair for any government to use a proprietary format to store critical documents in. By doing so, anyone who wishes to view, modify or access them in any way really needs to have a copy of MS Word. Just like I find it inadequate that teachers are not permitted to have a political bias in schools, and yet we all use MS software for IT lessons, and thus I am expected to have purchased a copy of MS Windows and additional software packages such as MS Word and so on. Good move Massachusetts. :-)
