This is useful. Could this be augmented by a similar survey of the membership?

I'm surprised that "define missing components to be on feature parity with FB Connect" does not even show up on the list. Whether or not that should be a goal is a different question, but the question should be asked?

Joseph Smarr led a discussion about “What Relying Parties Want.”  David Recordon and Dick Hardt led a discussion about priorities for updates to the OpenID platform (OpenID.NEXT).  Eric Sachs summarized what he had heard various constituencies voice as needs and objectives along with public commitments that individuals and/or organizations had made to improve the benefits, deployment, and usage of OpenID.  All that became input for a survey of the board members to highlight the areas we might want to focus on in 2010.  These survey results along with the precursor information will factor into the strategic, operating, and financial plans that Don Thibeau, our Executive Director, will be developing over the coming month to share with the newly constituted board after the elections occurring in a couple of weeks.
