It seems like you're breaking things down along the lines of "what"
comprises OpenID and "how" it advances in the marketplace -- or at least
that's how I'm interpreting your statement.
Unfortunately marketing a shitty product won't get us very far, so I'd say
that UX is just as primary as marketing. It might not be up to the board to
"do" the UX work, but nor is it the board's job to "do" the marketing.

Facilitate both, certainly -- and given where we are -- I'd say with equal
