UK Federation reaches 100

The UK Access Management Federation for Education and Research has reached 100 signed-up members.  Good stuff.

It'd be interesting to see a graph of how the rate of signing up has changed since the Federation was announced but I assume that it is showing a healthy upwards curve.

As Nicole Harris at JISC and others have noted recently, signing up now makes sense whether or not institutions have immediate plans to Shibbolise and irrespective of whether they intend to support Shibboleth in-house or outsource to a shared-service provider like Eduserv.

A colleague at Eduserv points out that we have 57 institutions (so far) that intend to join the Federation with OpenAthens.

I don't know what proportion of these are already members, but my guess is relatively few, so I'd expect the 100 figure to rise significantly over the coming weeks/months.
