A few years ago I pulled together the start of a community anthology.
You could think of it as a cannon of key blog posts and papers written in the Identity Gang and circulated around the Internet Identity Workshop and other conferences back in the day like Digital Identity World.
I think with IIW coming into its 10th year and #20 and #21 happening this year the time is right to make a push to get it cleaned up and actually published.
We need to make the important intellectual and practical work done thinking and outlining digital identity that this community has done . I also have included works that highlight key issues around user-centrism and identity that originated from outside the community of the identerati.
I am working on organizing a crowd funding campaign to raise a small amount to work with a professional editor and type setter get the needed copyright clearances so we can have a “real” book.
In the mean time I have this outline below of articles and pieces that should be included.
I would love to hear your suggestions of other works that might be good to include. It may also be that we have So many that choose to do more then one volume. For this first one my focus is more on early works that were foundational to a core group early on – essays and works that we all “know” and implicitly reference but may not be known or accessible (because they are 6-10 years ago in blogosphere time and that is eons ago) or may not even be on the web any more.
You could comment on this blog. You could use the hashtag #idanthology on twitter. You could e-mail me Kaliya (at) Identitywoman (dot) net. Subject line should include IDAnthology
The book would be dedicated to the community members that have died in the last few years (I am open to including more but these are the ones that came to my mind).
