Updegrove Chronicles ODF vs MSOOXML

Andy Updegrove has begun work on a book chronicling the current struggle between the ODF and MSOOXML file formats.

As far as format wars go, this is turning into one of the biggest and most important that has occurred in years. Thus, Updegrove intends to keep track of the events so they may be analyzed by others in the future.

Chapter two was posted recently, inserting more historical context on the players involved.

The draft chapters posted so far have also generated a healthy conversation in the comments section, with a mix of theoretical discussions, editing, and other feedback. Writing the book itself is going to be an interesting process to follow along.
