IETF 14 October 2013

Happy World Standards Day!

Leslie Daigle
By Leslie DaigleFormer Chief Internet Technology Officer

It’s World Standards Day! We’re a strong proponent of open standards for the Internet. Not only is the Internet Society the organizational home for the IETF, but we helped launch the OpenStand articulation of principles of the modern standards development paradigm.

You can read more about what we think is important in our CircleID post: “The Internet and OpenStand: The Internet Didn’t Happen by Accident.” Even better — you can support OpenStand. As the fallout from recent surveillance and standards-fixing accusations shows, open standards processes are the best way to detect and prevent inappropriate influence in standards development.

On World Standards Day, show your support!
