I've heard of this in the works for a while but now it's official. The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) has just announced a new entry level for membership. The Advocate level is a no-cost membership and enables the following benefits:

  • Advocate company name, logo, and testamonial quote posted on WS-I's website.
  • Advocate may post a special "WS-I Advocate" logo on their company's website.
  • Advocates receive a subscription to the WS-Insider, our newsletter published several times a year.

So if you have been thinking about getting involved with WS-I but haven't been able to justify the membership dues, this may work out well for you. Click here for the membership application. Oh, and make sure to put "Joe Pruitt, F5 Networks" in the "Referred to WS-I by" field.
