Due To OOXML Row, Finnish Standards Chief is Finished

October 3, 2007

First, you should know this going in. OOXML= Microsoft Office Open XML. Thus sprach Wikipedia.

Welcome back.

Finland-based Slashdot contributor Shirke posts this scoop of a scoop:

A Finnish computer magazine reports that Finnish Standards Association has fired Mr. Lassi Nirhamo (article in Finnish). Some excerpts: Mr. Nirhamo was chairing the OOXML standard proposal meeting. During the meeting Mr. Nirhamo asked other board members to be excused of his duties and voice his opinion as a private citizen. A

fter this was granted he criticized the standard proposal and resumed his duties as chairman. Mr. Nirhamo has now been let go due to a 'lack of trust."

Sounds a bit touchy to me. Ouch, that has to hurt.

The Finnish Standards Association is looking for a replacement, BTW...
