THE INVITATION TO IIW!
The Internet Identity Workshop focuses on “user-centric identity” and netizen empowerment on the social web trying to solve the technical challenge of how people can manage their own identity and social activity across the range of websites, services, companies and organizations that they belong to, purchase from and participate with.
This is where everyone from a diverse range of projects doing the real-work of making this vision happen gather and work intensively for three days. It is the best place to meet and participate with all the key people and projects. This is a comprehensive list of the technology communities that are covered.
The event does not have a pre-set agenda instead as people register they are asked what they would like to present about, learn and discuss with peers/industry experts. These are all collected here . The first morning of the conference will be introductory orientation about key projects and technologies in the community. After that the community creates the agenda itself using the Open Space Method. Dinner both Tuesday and Wednesday are a big part of the conference.
These documents are great resources for convincing your boss of the value of this event.
The heart of the workshop is a practical idealism in working towards the shared vision of a decentralized, user-oriented identity layer for the Internet.
Because the web was built around “pages”, no tools or standards were created to control how the information about you was collected or used. At the Internet Identity Workshop we bring the people creating these tools and standards so people can safely manage their online identity and control their personal data.
It is not about any one technology – rather it is a place to discuss multiple interoperating (and possible competing) projects, standards, and networks for identity, data sharing, and reputation.
As part of Identity Commons, the Internet Identity Workshop creates opportunities for both innovators and competitors. We provide an open forum for both the big guys and the small fry to come together in a safe and balanced space.
There are a wide range of projects in the community:
- Open conceptual, community, and governance models.
- Open standards and protocols.
- Open source projects.
- Commercial projects.
- Projects to address social and legal implications of these technologies.
- Efforts to rethink the business models and opportunities available with these new technologies.
User-centric identity is the ability:
- To use one’s identifier(s) on more than one site
- To control who sees what information about you
- To selectively share presence and profile information
- To maintain multiple identities and personas in the contexts you wish
- To aggregate attention, navigation, and purchase history from the sites and communities you frequent
- To move and share your personal data, relationships, documents, and other publications as you wish
All of the following are active topic areas at each IIW:
- Improving Existing Legal Constructs Privacy Policies Terms of Service
- Creating New Legal Constructs – Limited Liability Personas, Identity Rights Agreements
- Creating New Business Models – Identity Oracle, I-Brokers
- New Citizenship Perspectives – Activism Community, Event Coordination, Community Identity and Data Sharing
The Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) was founded in the fall of 2005 by Phil Windley, Doc Searls and Kaliya Hamlin. IIW is a working group of Identity Commons The event has been a leading space of innovation and collaboration amongst the diverse community working on user-centric identity.
