KML goes open

ReadWriteWeb comments on Google's announcement that KML is being handed over to the Open Geospatial Consortium. As RWW says: "For something as boring and painful as it is - standards work is very sexy". This gives us all more confidence that it is a format that's going somewhere and should be reliable for a good while to come. No more hangups about being too tied to Google's proprietary format. Cool!
