#iiw "I want to know you are not a dog"


Last week I was at The Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) in San Jose organised by Doc Searls, Phil Windley and Kaliya Hamlin - it was very good with a diversity of representation based on geography and discipline; with start-up, government and a number of the big corporates represented all at very senior levels.

Identity (whatever identity is) is a critical part of the overall trust framework of the Internet.  "I want to know you are not a dog" and featuring heavily in discussion and debate was.....

1. The U.S. government announcement of a new initiative called The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). The new program brings together government, industry and advocacy groups in order to build out what they’re calling an ”Identity Ecosystem” in the private sector.

2. Standards and interoperability especially OpenID & OAUTH implementations and improvements

3. Personal lockers, data stores, users in control and VRM

4. Digital Death - what happens when

5. Lots of demos .....
