I like the idea. It's also similar to what the Center for Internet
Security has done.
I'm a little confused on the individual and educational members, it
sounded like they were given commercial licenses in pages 1-2, and then
page 3 near the bottom, it sounded like they are paying for an open
source license. I would expect they would get a commercial license for
the individual or educational org.
The prices seem a little high starting with small org, I know the CIS
consulting license is $4000/yr ... well oops, it was ... looks like they
raised their prices <http://www.cisecurity.org/membership.html> and the
OWASP prices are very similar. Hmmmm... I still think about half of
the current prices would attack more members until we got more momentum
going. It will be interesting to see if the price increase for CIS
decreases the membership.
