That acceptance led ReadWriteWeb’s Marshall Kirkpatrick to call the OpenID Foundation “one of the leading organizations in the new standards world.” In that same post, Kirkpatrick urged people to participate in the elections for the OpenID Foundation Board of Directors.

Current members of the OpenID Foundation are encouraged to visit the OpenID Foundation, log in with their respective OpenIDs, and cast votes for up to seven candidates. For those who have not yet joined the Foundation, registration is open, starting at $25 for an individual account.

The elections will remain open until December 24, 2008. The new Board will be announced before December 31, 2008. Board members begin their term on January 1, 2009.
