This is an article in the Australian Computer world about Peter Quinn, the erstwhile CIO of the State Government of Massachusetts and one of the chief proponents of the move to the Open Document Format.

The excellent news is that he is scheduled to speak at the upcoming LinuxWorld Conf & Expo in Sydney. This would be a really great session to attend coming from someone who was definately in the front lines.
