So how did this all happen? Through a series of interesting coincidences in the 10 days (yes just 10 days) William got XDI to work for building working consumer facing applications. He showed the music meta-data application on Thursday evening and wowed many with the working name Nymble registry. The XDI [eXtneible Resource Identifier Data Interchange] standard has been under development at OASIS for over 10 years. Getting it to actually work and having the opportunity to begin to build applications that really put people at the center of their own data lives is a big step forward both for the Leola Group and the Personal Data community at large.

I accepted an invitation from Aestetix to present with him at HopeX (10).
It was a follow-on talk to his Hope 9 presentation that was on #nymwars.
He is on the volunteer staff of the HopeX conference and was on the press team that helped handle all the press that came for the Ellsberg – Snowden conversation that happened mid-day Saturday. It was amazing and it went over an hour – so our talk that was already at 11pm (yes) was scheduled to start at midnight.
Here are the slides for it – I modified them enough that they make sense if you just read them. My hope is that we explain NSTIC, how it works and the opportunity to get involved to actively shape the protocols and policies maintained.
