I chatted with Katherine Druckman and Doc Searls of Reality 2.0 about the dangers of ID.me, a national identity system created by the IRS and contracted out to one private company, and the need for the alternatives, decentralized systems with open standards.
I chatted with Alexa Raad and Leslie Daigle of Techsequences about self-sovereign identity: what identity is and how we’ve lost control of our own identity in today’s world.

“Who are you?”. Answering that may seem at once easy and yet incredibly complex. In the real world, we are born with, gain or develop aspects of our identity. But distinguishing who is who is a lot more complex online. Multiple entities assign IDs and keep track of our activities. Identity models have evolved from the traditional or siloed model to the federated models. The common denominator however is that you are not in control of your identity. Join us for a conversation with Kaliyah Young, expert in self-sovereign identity, on how we as individuals can gain control over what is uniquely ours: our identity.
I had the pleasure of talking with Bill Johnston who I met many years ago via Forum One and their online community work. It was fun to chat again and to share for the community management audience some of the latest thinking on Self-Sovereign Identity.
Kaliya Young is many things: an advocate for open Internet identity standards, a leader in the identity space – including hosting the Internet Identity Workshop, a published author, and a skilled Open Space facilitator.
On this episode of the Cohere podcast, Kaliya joins Bill to discuss the history of online identity, what events led us to the consolidation of identity into a few centralized platforms, and what steps we need to take to recover and protect our online identities.
For the opening episode of ‘Identikit Sequent X’, Michelle Dennedy welcomes Kaliya Young, also known as The Identity Woman, to Smarter Markets for our latest series examining the evolution of digital identity, and how self-sovereign identity, specifically, can advance a consent-based economy.
Kaliya is one of the world’s leading experts in self-sovereign identity and identity on the blockchain. She is the co-author of ‘A Comprehensive Guide to Self-Sovereign Identity’ and is widely known as The Identity Woman; also the name of her blog and twitter handle. Ms. Young has committed her life to the development of an open standards-based internet layer that empowers and enables the people and was named one of the most influential women in tech by Fast Company Magazine.
Are you in charge of your own digital identity? How do you share “verifiable” information about yourself on the internet?
I had the opportunity to discuss digital identity with Kevin Montalbo and David Brown, two co-hosts of the Coding Over Cocktails Podcast. The topics we covered were: the different domains of identity, how our identities are currently held and managed by corporations, civil society, and governments, and why we should advocate for the rights of our digital selves.

I had a great time with the the folks at RMIT on their Mint & Burn Podcast. Enjoy!
I was invited to join Heidi Trost to join her on my new podcast focused on Human Centered Security. We had a great chat focused on Self-Sovereign Identity.
In this episode we talk about:
What Kaliya describes as a new “layer” to the Internet to support decentralized identity, much like how html or email supported what came next.
The importance of open standards.
How to build a “digital wallet” paradigm that makes sense to people.
What SSI means for businesses/business models.
Kaliya is the co-author of “Comprehensive Guide to Self-Sovereign Identity,” and author of “Domains of Identity.” She is also one of the co-founders of the Internet Identity Workshop, which brings together people to help develop open standards for ways people can own and control their digital representations of themselves.
I spoke with James Felton Keith, author and podcast host of Inclusionism, about my book, Domains of Identity. How do we manage our digital identity? What are the 13 domains of identity?
Listen to Podcast: Inclusionism with Kaliya Young, author of Domains of Identity.
I got to speak with Kent Bye on his voices of VR Podcast. We were together at the DWeb Summit and that set the context for our conversation. I hadn’t listened to this interview ever until today – it is fun. I laugh a lot. Enjoy.
Kaliya Young (aka Identity Woman) has been working on digital identities for the past 15 years including helping facilitate the twice-a-year Internet Identity Workshop. These workshops lead to the Rebooting the Web of Trust workshops and the Decentralized Identity Foundation, which created a W3C specification on Decentralized Identifiers.
I had a chance to catch up with Young at the Decentralized Web Summit where we talk about the Decentralized Identifiers standards and the history of self-sovereign identity.
