Filed under
OSS

The Open Source Initiative (OSI) has elected Simon Phipps to the board of directors; Phipps recently left Oracle after serving as Sun's Chief Open Source Officer. He will take up his new position on the OSI board from April 1st.

In a blog posting confirming the appointment, Phipps says he is "honoured and delighted" to take up the position on the board of an organisation which "still plays a very important and relevant role in the world of software freedom".

Phipps notes that government and business policies point to the OSI's Open Source Definition as a "gold standard" definition of what open source means and that the OSI still has substantial authority when challenging abusers of the term.
