ODF Becomes Big-Time Politics

Apparently one of the gubernatorial candidates for the governor of Massachusetts has made ODF (OpenDocument Format) one of the central issues of his campaign. Governor Mitt Romney has announced that he will not run for re-election, making it a wide-open race, and John Bonifaz is the one making ODF campaign statements.

I'm not surprised that ODF has made it to politics -- Office is big money, and big money and politics go hand in hand -- but I am surprised that a politician was willing to make a fairly nuanced, technical issue part of his campaign.
