Liberty Alliance Cheaper, More Open

Just back from the Liberty Alliance plenary meeting in Brussels, Belgium. Lots of interesting stuff afoot, both in the plenary meeting itself and the associated Identity Open Space (IOS) event.

One big news item - the economics of Liberty participation just changed, radically: effective May 1, individuals can join Liberty Alliance as associate ($100) or sponsor ($250) members. Fees have also been reduced for enterprises and other organizations - see the new Membership Matrix (PDF) for details.

Also, the Technology Experts Group (TEG) mailing list is now publicly viewable. Paul explains some of the rationale. TEG is the powerhouse of the Liberty Alliance (no offense to Public Policy, Business and Marketing or any of the other expert groups!), turning market requirements into specifications; this move makes that mechanism completely transparent.

Looks like the trend towards openness and participation is spreading!
