Internet Society and World Wide Web Consortium Strengthen Relationship to Help Ensure Open Global Internet
The Internet Society (ISOC) and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) today announced a donation from ISOC for the purpose of advancing the evolution of W3C as an organization that creates open Web standards. Citing strongly aligned views on the value of an open global Internet and support for the current Internet governance and management model, the Internet Society pledged to support W3C efforts to implement a more agile, inclusive, and flexible organizational structure.

Over on the Open Web Foundation mailing list Eran Hammer-Lahav who, despite his gruff and disagreeable personality, I respect greatly for his work in the development of open standards, is effectively calling for a complete shakeup of the foundation and the efforts being poured into the ‘common ground’ of the standards efforts.

In the course of my work in Canonical and Ubuntu, I hear from a lot of folks who want to start an open software project, or have started one and want to make it work better. Some of them represent companies, while others are working on a volunteer basis. It’s great to see so much interest in this area, and I’m excited to see so many projects wanting to become more open.
