Dear OpenID Asian Community Member, Dear Business Leader:
This email is addressed in priority to all people who are presently
working in Asia.
I am planning a special, personal OpenID Asian trip in the spring
2009. The objective of this trip is to strongly empower OpenID in Asia
and to move it forward in the whole Asian Continent.
As I write this, I note that the number of active Web users un China
will surpass that of the users based in the United States in 2009 (280
million Chinese users, source: CNNIC).
I am planning to spend between 7 and 10 days in each country. Visits
have already been prepared in 4 countries (China, Korea, Japan and the
Indian subcontinent) to:
*Promote the Benefits of Company/Organizational Membership and
convince Asian businesses, organizations and individuals to become
members and to subscribe to the Foundation, as well as to support it
*Organize a Two-Day Event exclusively dedicated to OpenID, using the
last OpenIDDevCamp as a model
Venues will be procured by local organizations (Sponsors/Members).
*Deliver a Kit to the Local Chapters already in place; create official
Local Chapters in the countries where they do not yet exist.
*Meet with local OpenID Communities and other organizations such as
Open Source, Universities… We will use the Workshop format and
*Put forward a Media Event to promote a large local Internet site (RP)
who will just have implemented OpenID.
*Meet with decision-makers, CEO/CTO of businesses, start-up
associations and government officials,
*Organize a Press Conference with the local media and influential
bloggers in the country,
*Meet and interview a panel of end users (public venues, schools,
residences…) to demonstrate how OpenID can be used every day
*Any other project/action the OpenID Foundation would see appropriate
and important to put in place…
To become a success, this complex trip needs intense preparations and
coordination ahead of time. It can only happen with the help and
assistance of Local Communities, Businesses and organizations to plan
and prepare events and appointments.
I am convinced that such a Tour would have very favorable
repercussions throughout the Asian Continent. My first thoughts and a
first invitation are extended to OpenID Japan, who could play an
instrumental role in kick-starting this event.
The www.OpenID.asia site will be dedicated to the Tour, as it unfolds
from country to country.
If you work in Japan, China, Korea, Australia (and New Zealand) and
India… or any other countries in Asia, your help will be valuable.
We are counting on your help!
Thank you very much
