Phil Windley inquired to learn more about the XRI/XDI workshop on December 5th and this is what Andy Dale replied…
It is my intention that the afternoon provide potential implementers or implementation decision makers a very concrete idea of what they can do with i-names (XRI/XDI).
I want to let them know what they can do now and the schedule for the next pieces of the infrastructure being ready. I want them to know what people get ‘free’ with an i-name and what type of functionality they can start to provide people with i-names that no other technology will give them.
I want to paint a picture of the functional revolution that occurs when people aggregate their own data under their own control and how that lets any service provider give better service.
People should leave the workshop with an understanding that they can start to implement “Identity Centric Architecture” today and how that will benefit them and their members/customers.
