Why Enterprise Architects may not be contributing to Open Standards...
When I joined the OpenID list in hopes of contributing insight on how OpenID may be used in large enterprise B2B settings, I immediately received at least one dozen offlist replies wanting to know more about the problem space so as to them wanting to sell me a solution.
Likewise, whenever I post to the secure coding mailing list, consulting firms and software vendors come out of the woodwork. The same exact behavior is exhibited on LinkedIn.
I wonder if folks understand that they are doing themselves and the community at large a disservice by practicing these thinly veiled tactics?
