With the creation of the OpenSocial Foundation, the DataPortability Group (they'll need a Foundation soon), the Information Card Foundation and of course the now established OpenID Foundation... I'm getting "foundationed" out.
I wonder if the community couldn't do something closer to OASIS and have one over arching Foundation with sub-groups working in each of these important areas. The IPR could be consistent for all the groups, but each group would have it's own "board of directors" and control the results of specifications and other efforts.
All the different focuses are important, and new areas will arise as the identity layer grows across the internet. However, convincing "management" to join multiple different organizations is a deterrent to participation.
