Groklaw: Dan Geer’s Letter to Massachusetts

Groklaw publishes the text of Dan Geer’s letter to Massachusetts Senator Marc Pacheco, in which he discusses the hazards of a computing monoculture.

The argument traces the monoculture to its ultimate source, which is file format lock-in. Break that, and monoculture can be eliminated, creating a vastly more secure computing infrastructure and therefore a much more secure state government and regional economy.

Massachusetts’ selection of OpenDocument Format is the tool to achieve independence and this security.
