As volunteer convener of the ToIP Utility Foundry Working Group I am reaching out to all of you via the all members list to bring this WG to your valued attention. You most certainly are aware of the key role of Layer One Utilities! I will keep this comms brief: You are cordially invited to joining our WG. Please come to one of the meetings on Tuesday next week. If you feel like stepping up for Chair or Vice Chair, please respond to me. [tl;dr audiences can stop here and just join one of the meetings next week.]
Intro & Updates
This WG facilitates a community of practice among governance authorities, implementers, operators, and service providers for Trust over IP Layer One Utilities (see mission and scope as defined in WG charter). WG org area is located in the ToIP Wiki at the Utility Foundry WG page, WG work is documented in github. We held two meetings so far, with mutual introductions of WG members and initial organization of work items, e.g. workflow/decision tree for lifecycle stages, establishing relevant liaisons, understanding of open source tech & interoperability. Sounds interesting? Next meetings are coming up!
We have established a bi-weekly meeting cadence. US/EU time zones meeting is at: Tuesday 7 July 18:00-19:00 UTC / 11:00-12:00 PDT / 20:00-21:00 CET / 03:00-04:00 JST (=next day)
We will add a second slot more suitable for APAC time zones (invitation not yet sent): Tuesday 7 July 06:00-07:00 UTC / 23:00-00:00 PDT (=prior day) / 08:00-09:00 CET / 15:00-16:00 JST
