Patrick Jones comments on FHISO

 
Patrick Jones, well-known for his work with Internet security, governance, and policy, has recently blogged about FHISO: http://jonesandrelated.blogspot.com/2012/10/tech-tuesday-information-standards-in.html.

FHISO had a meeting with Patrick a few months ago where we had discussed several topics including our ‘Why FHISO?’ document.

 
Patrick, who is also a keen family historian, immediately recognised the importance of FHISO’s multi-stakeholder model for developing community-owned standards and serving genealogists worldwide. He likened its self-governing collaboration between all the stakeholders in our field to the coordination of the Internet’s unique identifier systems, and to the Open Stand model.
 
Patrick is a great person to have supporting FHISO and we’re honoured to welcome him onboard.
