Yadis 1.0 was announced by Johannes during the round table here at PCForum on identity reputation and attention. It was a good discussion There are a lot of concerns about these issues and some new folks joined the gang. Ross blogged about it here. Bruce from ATTAP really wanted a social movement to emerge around these issues.
So, right now they only way to verify that I own an account online “that I am who I am” is giving a third party the login to my account.
I want myAPI a secondary login for making assertions of ownership of an account as well as access to data in that account – like the books that I have bought, my linked in contacts, my budy list etc..
We need standard ways to access (via MyAPI) and share this information (putting information in standards formats (xri perhaps?) so that it can be integrated and aggregated by me and services that I want to use).
MyAPI has a different password then my ‘primary’ account and perhaps there are a few different levels of privileges.
