Intel One name was conspicuously absent from the list of companies backing Google's WebM project and the VP8 codec. Despite other chip makers and designers being on the list, like AMD, NVIDIA, ARM, and Qualcomm, Intel didn't make an appearance. Yesterday, the company made its first careful commitment to the WebM project.

For me, it was more about having an open codec for use across an open network. As an open standard, Theora would improve exponentially with the growth of the developer community. Consider why and who contributes to the kernel or Apache as near standards in there categories. Consider those same motivations applicably applied to an open video codec becoming ubiquitous.
