Looks like BGates is busy working the phones if this article is to be believed. That not withstanding, the MS Singapore folks have been busy visiting (all?) of the members of the ITSC Council to discuss MS research projects, working together options and, oh, by the way, about that OOXML vote. As far as I can tell, I am the only one they have written off- for you see, they feel that I am biased against them and cited that reason for not barring me from attending an ooxml briefing session held by a MS xml “guru”. They fail to realize, or perhaps are blinded by corporate chutzpah.
