    Greetings, my name is Jesse Stein, and I am IBM's Marketing Programs Manager for the Power.org initiative. BBRV asked me to post help answer the questions as to why Power.org is important, why we want and need your participations, and what's "in it for you"

    Power.org is more then a standards body supporting Power Architecture Technology. Among our corporate members this is the case, our corporate members are hard at work collaborating on standards and specifications that can move the platform as a whole wider and deeper.

    At the developer level (which by the way is free) we are building a community of developers, enthusiasts, supporters, and solutions providers who are all determined to help the organization as a whole build a thriving ecosystem around all things Power, whether they be embedded system, high-performance servers, or anything in between.

    In addition to recruiting corporations, to actively drive the collective agenda of the organization, we are building a community of individuals who develop on and for Power based solutions to help us drive this architecture to reach its full potential.... in all markets.

    If you believe that the a particular Power Architecture based solutions can be better positioned to expand into a market and collectively we can make it happen, then yes we want and need you.

    So, I encourage you to come check, it out, see for yourself what we are all about, we are driving some very interesting initiatives, inside our corporate technical committees (such as the release of our first collaborative, open specification) and within the individual community.

    As, I said the developer-level membership is free, and the best way to help drive the platform.

    On behalf of the MorphZone staff, I would like to welcome you to our communitysite. I have read your posts at www.amigaworld.net, and now I understand the whole power.org much better. You don't get paid for nothing ;-)

    This was posted 2 years ago:


    ...with some questionable statements, in hindsight:

    "Power.org was created [...] with the mission of guarding and evolving the Power ISA in the embedded and computer space, while promoting its member ecosystem. After 9 years [...], Power.org is pleased and proud to announce the successful fulfillment of its mission as evidenced by its committed and growing ecosystem. To celebrate this proud distinction, Power.org is extending to all of its current members in good standing a complimentary annual membership that will afford members the same member benefits and privileges of access to POWER IP and ecosystem solutions. Achieving its market acceptance objectives, Power.org will not be undertaking any new initiatives in the foreseeable future, but will remain [...] fully committed to managing and maintaining the Power ISA. Thank you for making Power.org a success!"

    "Power.org will continue to guard and evolve Power ISA."

    "Power.org’s mission is guarding and evolving Power ISA and promoting Power Architecture in the ecosystem. OpenPOWER’s mission is creating an open ecosystem using the Power Architecture to share expertise, investment, and server-class intellectual property to innovate across the full hardware and software stack for warehouse scale computing and scale-out datacenters."

    "Power.org will not be issuing a formal press release, any formal statement to the media or nothing in its social media."

    "[...] there is no conflict between OpenPOWER and Power.org."

    "Power Architecture has retained market share leadership in several markets and great differentiation in solution offerings in these markets."
