Boston, MA, USA; 19 March 2009 — OASIS, the international open standards consortium, today announced that its members have approved the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) version 1.0 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification.

Jaikido Blog: JaikuEngine is now open source!

Does this mean Google might be on the lookout to acquire for another micro-blogging service?
