"There is also a push by Microsoft and others to move ISO toward a "direct participation" model where corporations can participate in ISO directly, bypassing the national body mechanisms altogether. This would essentially turn ISO into a vendor consortium. So it will be interesting to see how this all turns out. To coin a folk aphorism, "In the land of the ugly queen all the mirrors have disappeared.". This comment is from the IBM's Rob Weir on his own blog post. Does someone has more information on this "JTC 1 N8812 - 60-Day Letter Ballot on the Establishment of an Ad Hoc Group on Direct Participation and Call for Participation"? Call your National Body now and try to find out what is going on. There seem to be a voting deadline next 24 December.
