MA Governor-Elect Names MS Anti-ODF Lobbyist to Technology Advisory Group

If memory serves, I don't think Patrick ran on a pro-MS platform.  I really don't think it's a fair characterization to say he has a mandate specifically about software and file format policy.  I doubt more than a small percent of the population could tell you what ODF is.

I supported Patrick because he has real potential as a leader, and had a vision on topics like Cape Wind and renewable energy in general that I agreed with. And his heavy focus on grassroots organization doesn't really gibe with the needs and wants of a convicted monopolist. That said, I am somewhat worried about this appointment.
