Subject: [KI-LC] Seeking your views on Kantara joining the MyData consortium


Many of you know or know of MyData.


Once upon a time, there was talk of them being incubated by Kantara, similar to the ID Pro model. But we couldn't agree terms so they have proceeded to do their own thing.

Nonetheless there is a good level of support cross-over and we have a congenial relationship if not a hugely mutually supportive one.

Typically I would not consider Kantara paying fees to another non profit, but this one has borrowed much from our model and from an ethics and ethos POV very similar.

So I think that in this case, it's reasonable to consider it, (and as Andrew suggested when I ran this past him yesterday) even if for a year or so to see how it goes.

Cost is very reasonable (non profits get 50% off a membership fee, and Kantara is classed as a micro business in EU terms) brings us in at €250 and about the same in US$.


In your opinion Chairs, Yes or No?
