Standing for the WS-I Board elections

I am now the official candidate for Cape Clear Software Inc. in the up coming elections to the board of the Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) as was announced in a press release earlier this week.

My platform for this candidacy is based on two core issues:

  • the need for the WS-I Board to represent the small and medium sized firms who make up over ninety percent of the membership
  • to promote greater transparency and accountability from the Board to the WS-I membership

As well as the usual news feed coverage, there have also been some interesting follow on stories appearing on Computergram [via The Register], STPforum, and eWeek in the last couple of days.

This is clearly a topic of wide interest to the industry, and does seem to be striking a chord based on some of the messages of support and interest I have received so far.

At the end of the day the WS-I membership will decide the final outcome, but this election is certainly raising some interesting issues and discussion points whatever the ultimate result.
