The Government Chief Technology Officers’ Council has recently begun an online survey of open standards.
This covers views on the meaning of “open standard” as well as relevance of specific standards.
Obviously, CETIS people will be responding but I’d like to encourage everyone with an interest in open standards to do so. I will be keeping an eye out for what might have been missed from the survey. Be warned, however, it might take some time if you have interests spanning several standardisation areas.
