Thanks much for your service to the OpenID Foundation and OpenID Community.
VeriSign has been an important contributor to both from the very beginning
and remains so today. Many of us recognize the leadership you've shown in
reprogramming VeriSign resources to support the government adoption of
OpenID last year and the launch of the Open Identity Exchange earlier this
year.  Your professionalism as a board member and help to me is particularly
appreciated.  Good luck with your new responsibilities.

Don Thibeau
Executive Director
The OpenID Foundation

Subject: VeriSign representative change


As you know, VeriSign's annual membership comes due every April and in
coincident with that I will be stepping down as VeriSign's representative
and I'll be replaced by Nico Popp who will assume the role as VeriSign's
representative.  Nico is planning to attend the annual F2F meeting/kickoff
on the 5th.

I've very much appreciated the opportunity in participating at the very
formative stage of the OIDF and being able to watch it grow into a vibrant
and active community.  Unfortunately commitments here at Verisign on new
initiatives causes me not to be able to put in the bandwidth and commitment
you are expecting from individual corporate members.

Nico's activities with the OIX and his past involvement in OpenID will serve
both the OIDF as well as VeriSign moving forward and more than likely will
result in much more active participation on the part of VeriSign as we move
forward in the coming year.

Thanks again for the opportunity.
