  10. Will you be able to read your documents 20 years from now? Every day,
  11. millions of computer users like you edit text and spreadsheets, take
  12. pictures and record audio and video. What if you couldn't read your
  13. private letters anymore, or even open that album with pictures from your
  14. honeymoon? What if you couldn't exchange those files with friends, because
  15. the software used by each one of you can't talk to each other? To help you
  16. make your documents future-proof, we celebrate Document Freedom Day on
  17. March 31.

  20. Any person can save documents in open document formats, which are based on
  21. Open Standards, and be sure that people will be able to read those files,
  22. independently of the software they use. Anyone can build applications that
  23. read and write files in these formats. The Internet was built upon Open
  24. Standards, and that's why you see so much innovation online.
  25. </p>
  26. <p>
  27. On Document Freedom Day, we will raise awareness for Open Document Formats
  28. and Open Standards by organizing activities all over the world together
  29. with partner organizations and volunteers.
  30. </p>
  31. <p>
  32. During the whole month of March, we will spread the word on open document
  33. formats and Open Standards. We will publish information, talk to the
  34. press, tell our friends about it, and spread the DFD logo all over the
  35. Internet.
