☆ Document Foundation Member

Having applied for membership as soon as the process was announced, I’m honoured to have been accepted today as a Member of The Document Foundation. Having been associated with OpenOffice.org for over a decade in a variety of capacities, I have a deep appreciation of what has been achieved both technically in creating a cross-platform productivity suite and politically in challenging what looked like an entrenched monopoly.

Today, LibreOffice and ODF have a maturity and global acceptance that even those of us imagining the possibilities at the start of the previous decade could not have anticipated. I look forward to working with the Steering Committee and the rest of the community to continue the amazing achievements to date.
