Bob Coret comments on FHISO

Bob Coret, of Coret Genealogie in the Netherlands, has blogged about FHISO at: http://blog.coret.org/2012/10/het-belang-van-standaarden-en-fhiso.html.

Bob, who describes himself as open data evangelist, in addition to Internet genealogist and consultant, recently became a founding member of FHISO. He sees huge international benefit from an organisation where genealogists and technologists will work side-by-side using the principles of diversity and due process, and he is already spreading FHISO’s message across mainland Europe. He sees this international message as crucial during the difficult process of creating a standards authority since “…a standard without adoption by software developers, website builders and institutions such as archives is worth nothing”.

Bob’s knowledge, experience, and insights will make a pivotal change in the recognition and support of FHISO. Excellent stuff Bob!
