The Tenth Internet Identity Workshop in May, 2010 was the largest ever. We have had inquiries from community members on the East Coast of the US and in Europe have been lobbying us to bring the event to their locations. We are happy to confirm that we are going host IIW’s in Washington, DC and London.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please take some action if you like IIW and are reading this. IIW is been about the community that attends and participates year round in the activities of groups that use the event to get real work done and move the industry and vision of user-centric identity that works for people forward.
So with these events upcoming Phil, Doc and I need your help in spreading the word to your collegues on the East Coast and in Europe who would enjoy the event.
To help you do this we have several tools and options.

If you value IIW and the conversations that happen there please take some initiative and reach out to colleagues to spread the word about these events. Because of the community focus of the events we rely strongly on community word of mouth to let people know about them.
It would be great to have community ideas put forward for the main IIW invitation articulating the current foci of conversations.
