WSDM 1.0 has been submitted to become an OASIS standard. As Jamie explains in his email, this means that OASIS members have until the middle of the month to familiarize themselves with the specs (MUWS Part 1, MUWS Part 2, MOWS). The vote will start on February 16th and if all goes well WSDM will be an OASIS standard by the end of this month. So make sure to read the specs and talk to your OASIS representative if your company is a member. For this small effort, you get to tell your grand children in 30 years “I was one of those who made the world a better place by making WSDM 1.0 an OASIS standard” and watch they eyes widen in amazement and pride.
