Thursday Speaker Series Topic — 3 years on: Open Standards, Open Source, Open Loop

At IETF 91, many outrageous claims were emphatically made
about the relationship between Open Standards and Open Source.
Three years later, let’s take a look at how much progress has
been made, if any; and discuss successes and failures.
Communities of developers and engineers have fully formed Open
Source efforts and are building large, effective communities
without any documented standardization as a part of their
strategy. How should SDOs interact with developers, communities
and deployers of Open Source? There are claims and perhaps proof
that Open Source now fully defines the industries "de facto
Standards." Does the process of standardization and the contents
and lifecycle of a standard need to fundamentally change?
