Correction on Information Card Foundation

Charles Andres from the Information Card Foundation posted a comment to correct my earlier post that Microsoft created the Information Card Foundation:

One small correction: Microsoft did not start the Information Card
Foundation.  A community of architects and designers including the creators
of the Higgins Project    created the organization before inviting any
corporations to join. The consensus of this community was that the visual
metaphor of a digital wallet and cards shared by  The Higgins Project
(which included open source components contributed by engineers from
Parity, Novell, Oracle, and IBM) Microsoft CardSpace, and other
researchers, is the best way to present controls for identity and personal
information to the widest possible user base.    The merger of these efforts
along with other components that can benefit from standards protocols  now
underway at OASIS,  makes ICF a common effort by many forward-thinking
companies who want to make the Internet a safer and simpler environment for
all transactions.  The decision by  Microsoft to join the ICF was a great
step for the industry to advance toward  a common unified way for users to
wield trusted verified claims.

Since comments don't usually get read - I wanted to make sure this correction was read.
