This is a great overview of the event. As an organizer of similar stuff in Portland, I appreciate how hard it is to keep the momentum of these things going. From a selfish standpoint (hey! One out of three ain't bad!) I hope you maintain these sorts of digests of future meetings.


Having done only a little bit of investigation into these guys, TRUSTe ( http://www.truste.com ) seems to do at least a little bit of what we were discussing at the meeting.

However, later that evening (and I apologize for not posting until now), I had some brief ideas on classifying the different types of roles that organizations play into a few small roles. Do you know if there is significant enough interest from the Open API participants to further pursue that conversation? I haven't seen much public discussion yet...

When we win it's with small things,
and the triumph itself makes us small.
What is extraordinary and eternal
does not want to be bent by us.
I mean the Angel who appeared
to the wrestlers of the Old Testament:
when the wrestler's sinews
grew long like metal strings,
he felt them under his fingers
like chords of deep music.

Whoever was beaten by this Angel
(who often simply declined the fight)
went away proud and strengthened
and great from that harsh hand,
that kneaded him as if to change his shape.
Winning does not tempt that man.
This is how he grows: by being defeated, decisively,
by constantly greater beings.
