I was invited to give a talk at TEDx Brussels. I explain Identity in the context of the Future. Enjoy!
This is the “punchline section” (in my response it is after what is below…the history of collaboration in the identity community): Proactive Development of Shared Language by NSTIC Stakeholders In 2004-5 the Identity Gang (user-centric identity community) was 1/10 the size of the current NSTIC stakeholder community. It took us a year of active grassroots effort to […]

You know I like social media tools and enjoy using them to share information. I am also very conscious of the implications of doing so and how public things are when I do. I manage my public persona – the parts of myself that I share publicly on the web associated with my professional work […]
One of the things you learn early on when diving into the subject of identity is that it means many things. The sense of self is one of them. Today I ran across this article via John Hage’s facebook. Storytelling 2.0 when new narratives meet old brains. “We are our narratives” has become a popular slogan. “We” […]
I was asked for a quote today to comment on F8 developments and the continuing apparent “centralization” of identity on that platform. It is not new for me to say these things but perhaps more crystallized….. The turning point of the web becoming more social was mentioned several times today. The issue at hand is […]
The picture pretty much sums the conundrum up. Is it ok for individuals to promote pot on these social networking services? Should social networks allow marijuana dispensaries to have organizational presences?

The researchers used the information […]
It is hard to believe but yes I have been tweeting for a year now. It was really two things that got me to try it – I was at a conference the value network cluster presenting about identity and bored out of my mind & Phil Windley talked about how it was helping his […]
I am Canadian so you can probably guess how I would have voted if I could have on Proposition 8 (the California constitutional amendment to define marriage as only between a man and a woman). My views are not the point of this post. I am very concerned about what is playing out – online […]
So, This summer there was some what of an controversy about the sponsorship of Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner by Zivity (a porn + social networking site where the men pay and get points to divvy up to women who’s “pin-up” photos are posted – and they can also “friend them”). I noticed this sponsorship […]
So Auren Hoffman e-mailed me regarding a blog post he just did about men and women and social networking. This subsequently pointed to his ‘research data’ which he does not disclose the way it was acquired. There are three names for this company (more details can be seen in this post). One of them UpScoop […]
