BBC: Questions for Microsoft on open formats

The BBC just put an article by FSFE media coordinator Joachim Jakobs and myself online in which we respond to an earlier article on a "time bomb" in the UK National Archives.

What Microsoft carefully sought to avoid mentioning in that article is that they themselves placed that time bomb in the UK National Archives which now threatens to cause a "digital dark hole" according to Gordon Frazer of Microsoft UK.

You can find our response online here.
