FAQ’s about LID from Johannes Ernst’s Blog – I think they apply to the work happening around XRI/XDI and Identity Commons stuff. I am going to do my part by working on doing some essays with lots of simple diagrams to explain the ecology of organizations and roles. Hopefully we can also do a short […]
I don’t feel so bad now…I see that Chris Cepi has not blogged since DIDW either. His last post highlights such as: Best Semantic Transformation: Kim Cameron swapping “reify” for “thingify” Most Predictable Vendor Behavior: Awkwardly inserting the recent Identity Theft instances into product and company pitches – for products and companies that do not […]
