The AICPA describes the document:

This paper, based on a chronicle of Charles Hoffman and Louis Matherne, documents the story of XBRL told from the perspectives of many key influencers of XBRL throughout its history. The AICPA interviewed many of the XBRL contributors in order to encapsulate the journey from its original development to the creation of a consortium of over 550 organizations who work together to continue to build a common language for business reporting and support its adoption.
