“Open standards make sense. What makes no sense is that large companies in the field still do not understand this. It is time once and for all to end the pointless nonsense of one document sent on one platform being incomprehensible to the user of another.” — Stephen Fry
This comes right on time after recently getting my Nook Tablet which I promptly had to root before expecting it to function properly. So what is Document Freedom day about?
Quite simply, Document Freedom day is a collective call for open standards from us readers to the ebook publishing industry.
I must say that I am a bit disappointed just now hear of this. Even more so to find that there are no scheduled events in the USA. Nevertheless, I know an awesome cafe here in Austin where I can post some flyers and I also happen to have a blog to tell people they can go to http://documentfreedom.org/ to learn more. How convenient.
