Identity 2.0 Gathering: Getting to the Promised Land (3 tags)
The "identity gang" (Doc Searls, Phil Windley, Drummond Reed, and Kaliya Hamlin) has been meeting informally at tech conferences during the past year, but the time has arrived for diving deeper into the different proposed protocols (and the philosophies behind how their architects built them). Kaliya, a.k.a. Identity Woman, shares her perspective on identity and invites people to join her and the rest of the gang at the Internet Identity Workshop, October 26-27, in Berkeley, California.

Phil is the author of O'Reilly's Digital Identity.
