Sure, I've always been in support of empowering Bill to move forward.

What do you see as being, "the means with which to execute"?

Hi Everybody,

We have IIW just around the corner and I think we'd all agree that it
would be nice to announce a few things there.  For me, I'd like to be
able to announce the creation of the Foundation and a plan/solution for
the IPR.
Are there others that are important for IIW?

All of us are busy with our respective businesses and as such we're not
able to move these forward as quickly as we would like.  IIW is just 4
weeks away.

I'd like to propose that we appoint Bill Washburn as the Executive
Director of the to-be-formed OpenID Foundation and give him the means
with which to execute on the aforementioned pieces.  The goal would be
to have one person whose job it is to make sure we get everything done
(most of which will be done by delegation) for IIW.  Doing this would
also help Bill in getting it done as he'll have the weight of the board
behind his decisions.
