a 'mooh' point

clearly an IBM drone

Struck by the Wrath of Roy "Kahn" Schestowitz

As the real work of maintaining OOXML in ISO has begun, I have had some time to ponder over events throughout the last year - starting with the BRM in Geneva in February 2008.

Being in Geneva was really hard work, negotiating all day in a 120-seat plenum while in the evening preparing suggestions in coorporation with other delegates from other countries. It was fun, but hard, nevertheless. I remember sitting on my bed in the hotel room trying to sort out everything while trying to keep up with the debates happening outside our meeting room (a defecto radio silence had been initiated voluntarily by the more prominent bloggers around the world, so no information was being released to the people desperate for the slightest amount of information).

One of the tools I used was to keep track of the sites referring to my blog and one evening as I sat eating Swiss chocolate on my bed in the hotel, I noticed a new referral from Google Groups.
