ODF vs OOXML is not the only example.

In 1998, following the submission of VML and PGML (both vector graphics formats using XML) to W3C, a new standards working group was created, SVG, to take the best of both for the Web. Microsoft decided not to join largely because SVG used so much PGML & promoted VML in its products, implementing it in Internet Explorer and Office so SVG would suffocate and die.

24 years later, Microsoft has deprecated VML and fully implemented SVG.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Oh wow, #Google are really hell-bent on promoting @nextcloud, aren't they?

> [Google Drive] is now limiting how many non-Google users you can share with to create artificial pressure to get others on Google. I guess more motivation to start sharing Notion pages with clients instead of docs.

[it's of course also very interesting and somewhat sad to see the author of this post advocating another closed, centralized walled-garden as a replacement 🤷‍♀️ ]
