We had a great conversation about digital identity in Political Economies and specifically a paper with a proposal by Bryan Ford.
Life on Intersections: Digital Identity in Political Economies
Most digital identity systems are centralized (e.g., in big government or technology organizations) or individualistic (e.g., in most blockchain projects). However, being in the world is fundamentally social and intersectional — we are all part of networks. So how might we formalize digital identity in a way that better reflects this complex reality? This panel with leading social technology and computer researchers explores more robust digital identity approaches and potential application areas in political economies.
