OpenID Foundation Board Election Results Announced

Here at ReadWriteWeb, we’re big proponents of the Open Stack. As such, we’ve been encouraging you to participate in the OpenID Foundation Board elections, throughout December. Hopefully, you got the chance to participate, because the elections have come to a close. The OpenID Foundation has announced its new Board.

For seven available slots on the Board, seventeen individuals were nominated. After member voting, four Board members have been elected to serve two-year terms and three have been elected to serve one year terms. Snorri Giorgetti, Nat Sakimura, Chris Messina, and David Recordon will serve two years on the Board. Eric Sachs, Scott Kveton, and Brian Kissel will serve one-year terms. All terms begin on January 1, 2009.

After a successful 2008, this Board comes into a proving year for OpenID. With a number of household names getting on the OpenID and Open Stack bandwagon, the tipping point could be very near in 2009.
