IIW Is Just Around the Corner


If you are wondering what the Internet Identity Workshop is all about we have a new articulation posted on the main wiki page for our upcoming conference. It goes into the range of topics covered along with the technology and social issues. This is our 6th event and I think it will be a great one.

MONDAY IS FREE (beginning at 1PM)

We have Monday’s program figured out and Monday afternoon is FREE to anyone who wants to come and check out the emerging field. We will open at 1pm.

We will open with a ‘newbie’ perspective from Ryan Janssen who has been an amazing active reader of the community blogs and writing about it as Dr. Star Cat

Everyone will get a hand out of all the community project one pagers.

Presentations will then follow about five centers of gravity in the community that we see:

The VENN OF IDENTITY

  1. OpenID - David Recordon
  2. SAML/Liberty Alliance - Paul Madsen
  3. i-cards - Pamela Dingle
  4. Data sharing/linking - Drummond Reed
  5. Vendor Relationship Management Project - Chris Carfi

Between 3:30 and 4:00 we will be all together - considering “what useful things can we do” along with other questions please be there for this if you feel all up to speed on “everything”. We think that the presentations will be informative for those already familiar with the landscape it has moved forward since we last were together - so we encourage you all to get there at 1PM.

We are working on a blog push on Thursday May 1st - blog about it that day- (if you miss that day - blog about it anyways over the weekend)
