<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Jason Grigsby of Cloud Four presented an assessment of the OpenID web sites.  Cloud Four is a consultant that has developed the
 Account Chooser and OIX web sites.  Cloud Four has built sites for other standards organizations, including DMTF and SNIA.  They are members of the OpenID Foundation.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He stated that challenges for our sites include people having trouble finding information, content being out of date, and inconsistent
 designs between the sites.  His thesis is that the underlying issue for openid.net is that the direction and role of the foundation has changed.  He stated that previously, the OIDF direction was consumer adoption of OpenID accounts, whereas now, the direction
 is promoting adoption of OpenID technologies, including OpenID Connect, Account Chooser, and Backplane Exchange.  He said that we’re acting more like a traditional standards organization.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Traditional standards development organizations (SDOs) exist to create a market or ecosystem – not to directly touch consumers. 
 For example, the USB forum didn’t focus on promoting USB to end users; instead, it promoted USB to Apple, Dell, Microsoft, etc.  Consumer adoption followed.  It is difficult for SDOs to make consumer pitches.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He stated that accountchooser.net will make the consumer identity pitch.  Whereas, openid.net should facilitate the activities of
 working groups as a primary function.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He surveyed the tools used by OpenID and OIX working groups.  They included Mailman, Google Groups, Github, Bitbucket, GoToMeeting,
 Google Calendar, and Google Docs.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He recommended that the organization adopt a common set of tools for working group needs.  He recommended Google Groups, Github,
 Google Calendar, and Lucid Meetings.  (A founder of Cloud Four participated in writing Lucid Meetings.  It is intended to facilitate process within meetings.)  His purpose, in part, was to facilitate automated data gathering from those tools to present status
 information about work on the openid.net web site.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He showed an example “status dashboard” site for the OpenID Connect working group to facilitate discussion.  It lists specifications,
 commits, meeting minutes, getting-started content, and other things.  He proposed automating pulling this information from the tools into status pages.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Mike asserted that a primary purpose of the openid.net web site should be helping people decide to join and participate in the activities
 of the foundation – not so much just facilitating the internal working of the working groups.  He said that the working groups are largely functioning fine using the tools that they are already using.  Kick also asserted that we want the web site to help increase
 participation and involvement.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Jason said that it’s important that it be evident to people not in the working groups that there is activity under way.  Mike agreed. 
 Jason stated that he’d like it to be easy for outside people to quickly understand what the status is and what the current specs are.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Jason stated that we need to change the perception that OpenID has failed.  It’s not true, but he said that our current openid.net
 site does little to dispel that view.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif""><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">Jason asserted it may be an indication of the failure of an organization’s tool sets when separate web sites start emerging.  However,
 he said that sites for international chapters in local languages are normal and appropriate.  That said, he said that it’s common for pages to be translated into local languages and then not get updated when the original page changes, and tooling could help
 alert local site maintainers to changes.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="line-height:115%"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">He believes that the openid.net site needs to facilitate the missions of the Foundation as it exists today and not continue to try
 to reach out to individual consumers.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
