As promised a few months ago, the OpenSocial Foundation is up and running. This organization seeks to ensure that OpenSocial will remain implementable by all, at no cost, in perpetuity. This Foundation will also help nurture the real power behind OpenSocial: the community of developers, containers, and everyone contributing to the specification. The curious among you are welcome to peruse the OpenSocial Foundation FAQ. In addition to the individuals listed below, the complete Board of Directors will include two additional representatives from the community at large that will be nominated and elected by that very same community in the coming weeks.
The initial Board of Directors (five of the seven):
- Anil Dharni, hi5
- David Glazer, Google
- Joe Greenstein, Flixster
- Allen Hurff, MySpace
- Sam Pullara, Yahoo!
- TBD #1, Community Representative
- TBD #2, Community Representative
* TBD directors will be determined by the community (that's you!)
