*Marketing Committee report*
Upcoming events:
Identity.Next in EU in Nov - Kick driving.  Ping involved
Summit in Tokyo - Nat/Don driving.  Fund raising in good shape.
Summit in Australia - Pam driving.
Joint UK Summit with OIX in Q1 2013 - Don driving

Using Disqus for OpenID blog moderation
Don & Cloudfour working on ideas for consistency across OIDF, OIDF Japan,
OIX, Attribute Exchange, Account Chooser
Accountchooser.net stable - just want to cleanup technical integration
guide and get Don to record a video of the slide deck

Monitored press on non-OIDF efforts and fortunately no major issues: NSTIC,
Mozilla Persona, OAuth2, ...

*Account Chooser WG Status Report*
At IIW the WG decided we are ready to asked individuals to raise awareness
of AccountChooser to early adopter techies
Other decisions:
AC.com will only support the favicon model.  We prefer "one" approach if
possible, so will wait to see how many complaints we get.
On AC.biz (a test domain) we may support others for experimentation
Agreement to use Symantec for domain mgmt and SSL, and to incorporate
Symantec branding
Symantec will only make major domain changes if the OIDF executive
committee notifies Symantec of a decision made by the Account Chooser
workgroup.  That will be communicated to Symantec's rep on the OIDF board
The WG would like individuals to start raising awareness of AccountChooser,
though a formal OIDF marketing push will wait till we have more feedback
Symantec was asked to try do quickly add branding shown when users directly
visit accountchooser.com instead of from a site redirect.  Then take over
mgmt of the domain.  Other changes like EV SSL cert can come later.

*Account Chooser WG Status Report*
accountchooser.com is now available, but we are only "quietly" talking
about it.  The goal is to get early adopters to experiment with it with end
users and provide feedback
At CIS we have run 2 of 3 sessions that cover it and the feedback has been
quite positive
Most of the questions are about improving the technical integration docs.
 That includes more detailed specs for the API interaction.
Source code has also been published
We have a few additional IPR contributors and are hoping to get more people
involved in docs, API specs, and code contributions

*Marketing Committee report*
The marketing website at accountchooser.net is live, but again we are only
"quietly" talking about it
The OpenID Summit at the Cloud Identity Summit went quite well, except we
lost some speakers at the end
An in-person meeting is being planned in the Bay Area on August 1st to
discuss next steps
Nat & Kick have both expressed interest in additional marketing, and we
will discuss that at future conference calls

Below are a copy of the reports from the most recent EC call
