MP3 of MA Meeting on Open Formats
Thursday, September 22 2005 @ 02:35 AM EDT

I found this fascinating. The Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (an organization formed by a combination of the Massachusetts Software Council and the New England Business and Technology Association) had a meeting last Friday with Massachusetts Secretary of Administration & Finance Eric Kriss, CIO of the Commonwealth Peter Quinn, representatives from Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, Sun, and other companies and groups to discuss the XML/Open Document format decision and to provide feedback to Massachusetts.

Dan Bricklin taped it, and he has made it available on his website as an MP3. He does a brief introduction, then Secretary Kriss talks for about 20 minutes, and then Q&A starts at about 21 minutes in or so. The meeting lasts for 2 hours. The first time Stuart McKee of Microsoft (National Technology Officer) speaks is at 26:15. Microsoft is clearly not happy, and they ask what would make it possible to get added to the list. Kriss tells them clearly. They don't seem to understand the answer.

Bricklin requests that you right-click the MP3 to download it and listen to it after it has downloaded, as opposed to just clicking on it and listening.

Update: Tim Bray has posted a participant's notes from the meeting. Also, I have permission to do a transcript. If anyone is in a position to help with that, especially the interaction between Microsoft and Kriss, that would be very helpful.
