google uses writley to promote open document format

Google joins OpenDocument group
"When a company like Google puts its name behind any effort to promote OpenDocument Format it's a sign that it is not just a technology on the move, but one that is arriving very rapidly," said Will Rodger, director of public policy at the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA).

now that google is in the 'word processing' space with the acquisition of writley.com, they have joined the odf alliance (opendocument format). started as 36 members, odf now has 240 members all working to promote an industory open standard for document storage and transfer.

if i worked on microsoft's office product, i'd be annoyed. google now has opened another front on it's efforts to make web applications ubiquitous.
