Hey Sebastien,
I completely agree, having international involvement is very important.
The current Wiki already has some translations, though I do know we can
do better.

No, the Microsoft joint announcement yesterday does not change anything
about the formation of the foundation.  :)

I know a lot of people in Europe are interesting in promoting OpenID,
and I wonder how we could help to build regional tasks forces to help
evangelize people about Digital Identity in general, and OpenID in
particular. I'm not talking about creating a foundation here in Europe,
but at least having a common twiki or blog where people would not for
sure they would find the last informations and pointers in their native

Also, is this project of foundation frozen since the last announcement
of Microsoft joining the effort ?
