The world’s FIRST Document Freedom Day has come.
It came to me as a surprised as I was checking my RSS feeds today and found in on Ubuntu Tutorials – What Are You Doing For Document Freedom Day?. Go spread the word. For freedom!!!
In a world where records are increasingly kept in electronic form, Open Standards are crucial for valuable information to outlive the application in which it was initially generated. The question of Document Freedom has severe repercussions for freedom of choice, competition, markets and the sovereignty of countries and their governments.
The Document Freedom Day (DFD) is a global day for Document Liberation with roughly 200 active teams worldwide. It is a day of grassroots effort around the world to promote and build awareness for the relevance of Free Document Formats in particular and Open Standards in general.
