Bosak urges "complaining" developers to join OASIS

In his opening keynote at XTech 2000, Jon Bosak announced he has stopped his W3C involvement to concentrate fully on OASIS, and urged XML developers to lend their support to OASIS as well.

In a speech highlighting the dangers of non- interoperable e-commerce systems, Bosak said that OASIS, as an organization dedicated to interoperability, provided the best way for developers to ensure the continuing openness of XML.

He challenged both vendors and developers to support standardization through OASIS. He said was tired of hearing complaints from developers who did not get involved in the standardization process.

After his talk, he was presented with a plaque naming him "XML Father", in recognition of his long service to XML at the W3C.
