I have actually put a bunch of work in to moving all the content that was on the sidebar of my blog up into pages that you can see along the top navigation. They still need some more work but it is good to finally have them there. One of the pages is about upcoming talks.
This is the description. I hope we broaden it to include other identity technologies too.
The debate over identity, data and authentication is gaining ground in the social networking world. The more difficult discussion regarding enterprises and Web 2.0 has yet to start.

Join brave leaders from several Web Application companies that are beginning the discussion – Are OpenID and OAuth good for the enterprise?
I will be facilitating a Peer 2 Peer session at the RSA security conference April 23, 10:40-11:30 on the topic Claims-Based Identity – What is the Business Case?
The user-centric identity community has been working on information cards an open standard for claims based identity architecture (as opposed to a network end-point architecture). The big question that arises is “what is the business case?” This session will be an open discussion around the existing and potential business models and cases for such a meta-system to emerge.
I am speaking at Community 2.0, on Identity Across Communities – Tools for Making it Real. May 13, 2009 San Francisco, CA
This presentation will cover the core user-centric identity technologies that are emerging to support people being able to port their identifiers and information about themselves between websites. The goal is to make it easier for people to share information along with support the emergent social effects like trust that come from persistence across time and space and ultimately build stronger communities faster. The tools include OpenID, Open Social, Information Cards, The Relationship Button from Project VRM (Vendor Relationship Management).
