My personal feeling is that a chair with connection to the "Open Stack",
i.e. OpenID, OpenSocial, etc. - or at least someone who is
friends-of-a-friend with them, would be best. Someone with actual pull
in industry would be ideal. I am not that person. I am not sure who on
this list is.

I am also happy to edit some document about technical details, or just
comment.
