Document Freedom Day 2010 announced
This year's Document Freedom Day will take place on the 31st of March. On this day, the organisers intend to highlight the importance of open document formats and standards. As last year, there will be global activities and events for people to participate in. The organisers say that the motivation behind the day is "To help you make your documents future-proof".
They add that "Any person can save documents in open document formats, which are based on Open Standards, and be sure that people will be able to read those files, independent of the software they use" and that because of this "Anyone can build applications that read and write files in these formats. The Internet was built upon Open Standards, and that’s why you see so much innovation online."
The organisers list possible ways of getting involved in the project's blog. They include distributing leaflets, organising workshops, or simply adding the project's logo to one's home page. The organisers say that what's important is to make as many people as possible aware of the topic.
