Since I will be unable to attend the call, wanted to give an update on
the new website effort I've been leading along with Vidoop.  Currently
discussion has begun on marketing at openid.net both around messaging
(though Dick is leading the effort to determine the overall core
messaging for OpenID) as well as an actual design for OpenID.net moving

Thomas Huhn bought spreadopenid.org (ala SpreadFireFox) awhile ago and
is interested in also incorporating it in the overall messaging and
design perspective to be a more end user friendly website and has agreed
to donate it to the Foundation.

Vidoop has posted a preliminary design
(http://openid.net/pipermail/marketing/2007-July/000039.html) and
Drummond, Bill, Snorri, and I (on behalf of one of our designers) have
provided feedback.  Right now I believe we're waiting on a second
version of the design given the feedback, though generally need to start
engaging more of the community to participate on the list.
