| Just today, a secret agreement between MS and the Chilean Government came to 
| light. In it, every citizen was sold as a potential user of a Windows Live 
| Spaces model where every SSN is linked to, overbypassing any privacy term and 
| cashing Bill some bucks. It wouldn't be so awful to all if that agreement 
| wasn't aprooved yet (Spanish follows).

| After a very difficult and inconclusive meeting in ABNT (Brazilian Technical 
| Standards Organization) office last Tuesday, the standards process director 
| had to analyze the audio recording of all the meeting, review some facts, 
| review again all 63+2 comments produced by the technical group about the ECMA 
| specification, and conclude that a NO for OOXML is the correct position for 
| Brazil in ISO Fast Track process.
