Open Web Foundation

Something called the Open Web Foundation just launched.
I really like the concept: creating a home for community-driven specifications, which will hopefully help them become more successfully adopted (and get to the holy grail of officialdom at IETF, W3C, etc...).
It's really hard to get a good spec structured with good intellectual property legalese early on, as one mostly focuses on the spec itself rather than its legal aspects. At Telnic most of our work is in fact defining policies and setting up this legal infrastructure so that the .tel ecosystem can independently thrive the way it should.
So I personally am very happy to see such a community-driven endeavor started. I'll try to contribute whatever meager knowledge I've got.
