Judith Fleenor kicked off the meeting with the Anti Trust policy to review and the agenda. Judith Fleenor reviewed the agenda and shared that we will be reviewing blog updates, I just wanted to let everybody know where we are with the upcoming blogs that are coming, I want to talk a little bit about our event schedule and specifically about the Open Source mini summit hyper ledger global forum that's coming up. Then said that we will just do an update on some action items and then talk about video content due to not having all the folks needed, we will need to push that out to our next meeting. She asked if there were additional items to review and there were not. She went on to discuss the up-coming blogs that need discussion and approval. The following Blogs are underway: eIDAS/EU Digital Wallet Series, OIX Trust Framework and SSI BLOG Series, Keys to SSI Adoption BLOG or Series and EIC recap BLOG. Judith Fleenor provided an update on the OIX situation and BLOG, she shared that we will be pointing to each others work, rather than have an MOU in place. She shared that our ToIP team met with OIX team at EIC and with the help of Daniel Bachenheimer and team, they're making changes for immediate implementation in advance of Identiverse for the BLOG. She asked that we take a look at the BLOG once again, since this was previously approved, based on the recent changes.   Judith Fleenor went on to the next BLOG, Decentralized Identity: Keys to mainstream adoption that Mike and Karl from IdRamp are working on. She mentioned that the BLOG approval was sent out to the All Members list and received a number of edits and recommendations, since this was unintended for such a wide audience, Judith Fleenor has asked Mike and Karl to review the comments and accept or reject as they see fit. There is supposed to be additional parts (2 & 3) to this series as their time permits. 

Judith Fleenor went on to share the list of up-coming events, she mentioned that EIC just recently passed and that RSA is coming up and she plans to attend and meet folks. She's asked our community to inform her if/when they're attending conferences so that we can provide graphics and ToIP content and cross-pollinate to help promote our mission. Phil Wolff recommended we post conferences on a wiki page to track who's attended and who's presenting at these conferences accordingly. John Jordan agrees this is a good idea and believes this is something we should implement. Daniel Bachenheimer also mentioned that folks speaking and attending should all have an opportunity to provide a recap or insight post conference. Judith Fleenor mentioned they've working on a BLOG from EIC and has asked folks to provide content and insight from their experience from the conference in the BLOG that Drummond Reed is helping to structure.

Judith Fleenor continued that the Dublin summit is on the calendar and shared that we need to define our goals so that we can start acting on a list to activate and promote for the conference. LF will publish in July for the Open Source Summit Europe. Scott Perry mentioned that the speaker list will be released the first week of June for the Hyperledger Global Forum, based on which speakers are accepted. Daniel Bachenheimer mentioned that he may be participating in Identity Week in UK, Nick Mothershaw asked for ToIP to be invited and Judith will let Nick know that Daniel Bachenheimer may be in attendance. 

Judith Fleenor mentioned the Editorial Calendar that Alex is working on and then asked John Jordan to work with Daniel on the technical needs for the trademark efforts. She went on to mentioned the pitch for our ToIP Tagline and John Jordan went on to share that in thinking of our overall model of ToIP, rather than the traditional models of login and he likes the idea of Your Data in Your Hands, rather than Your Data in Their Hands; Your Digital Future in Your Hands is the new iteration of the tagline.  Judith Fleenor mentioned another option that she likes is more focused on the current enterprise AIM structure, which is OIDC for Enterprise ToIP for the Internet. John Jordan stated this may not be the best tagline, but rather a talking point for ToIP and our efforts in the community. John Jordan went on to say that we want to illustrate a login centric model offers, so I think again that's sort of a differentiation piece, and you can kind of think of it is transporting you know transporting that. The authentic potentially trusted data over confidential channels over the Internet that's a protocol question as opposed to open ID and those kinds of things which are interfaces So if you look at our stack interfaces are sort of within the enterprise within the solution and protocols are across you know boundaries of some kind kid organizational jurisdictional you know so forth, so these are the kinds of themes that have been been kind of bouncing around in my head and a few others, of how do we make it clear that we're solving for a different problem. He said that eventually this model as it matures will be able to address within the enterprise and Nice ways as well, but for now it's much more productive to take space that isn't currently occupied. Judith Fleenor asked the Communications Committee to help create a tagline that illustrates what we're doing and how we're different, but that also demonstrates our posture in the ecosystem. Sumabala Nair likes the Digital Future in Your Hands tagline because of all the conversations that are happening around web to us is abut the concerns around corporations being able to centrally manage and have access to not just your ID, but also be able to infer what systems you use. wHat if your online presence for the operations so basically get a lot of metadata around who you are and what you do. Sumabala Nair introduced herself and is excited to be here.
