Open Standards have been around for a long time and I recognize
industry force. Open Source is a recent industry phenomonen. Both
Open Source and Open Standards have weaknesses and strengths. The
argument of this presentation is by merging the two, a new and
powerful source for advancing industry can be achieved.
