I am heading out east in February and will do several identity related events – more on those by the end of the week.
I will be once again facilitating Forum One Networok‘s Online Community Unconference East February 11. Bill Johnston has been great to work with on this event and has extended early bird for $145 registration until the Jan 22nd.
The Online Community Unconference East is a gathering of online
community professionals – managers, developers, business people, tool providers, investors – to discuss experience and strategies in the development and growth of online communities. Those involved in online community development (and social software in general) share many common challenges: community management, tools, marketing, business models, legal issues. As we have found with our past events, the best source of information on all of these challenges is other knowledgeable practitioners.
At all the online community unconferences I have offered a session about identity technologies. I am hoping that some community members working on OpenID and Information Card maybe even some ID-WSF and SAML folks too. will also join me at the event. It is a great opportunity to talk with actual adopters/potential adopters of these technologies they represent hundreds of thousands of users and because of the focus on online community managers – there is an emphasis on the human side of things not just “business models” or “technical how to”
