FFII campaign for ODF

It's not big news that the Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII) have been campaigning against Microsoft's efforts to have their MS Office documents adopted as an international standard. They are now, however, offering a prize of 2,500 Euro for "team that makes the best effort to helping the International Standardization Organisation (ISO) fight off Microsoft's lobbying"

Update: The BBC has a related article Questions for Microsoft on Open Formats "After Microsoft announced it would work with the UK National Archives to help open old digital document formats, Georg Greve and Joachim Jakobs, of the Free Software Foundation Europe, question the US giant's motives."
