Heading to Europe – 4 Events + 9 “free” days

I am coming to Europe in November for four events that are all Identity related… Instead of doing an IIW “in” Europe we have decided to support IIW like events :).  I also need to find interesting things to do for 9 days in November.
Identity.Next  is in TheHague on November 9th http://www.identitynext.nl

1/2 the day is an unconference that I am helping to facilitate. If you can make it I highly recomend it – it was a great event last year and should prove to be again this year.

 

Digital Death Day is happening November 11th in Amsterdam. http://www.digitaldeathday.com

It is a super ineteresting topic – What happens to your Data After you Die?

Please spread the word about this event it is totally grassroots, and the conversations in this are are really amazing…if still not yet a mainstream part of the digital identity community.

 

I will be speaking about the Personal Data Ecosystem ( you will be happy to know there are 6 startups from Europe in the Startup Circle) at the STL Partners New Digital Economics event in London on November 10th that will be the only time I am in the UK.
I am looking for interesting things to do and people/ places to visit between November 12th and November 21st on the contenent. Drop me a line if you have ideas or invitations – kaliya@identitywoman.net.

I end my trip speaking at TEDx Brussels on November 22nd about a “day deep in the future” still trying to figure out what I will say but I am contemplating…open to community ideas actually as I am focused on getting a clear vision of the talk in the next week.

Web Wide Sentence Level Annotation -> Hypothes.is

I first met Dan Whaley last spring via an introduction from Jim Fournier co-founder of Planetwork.  I was inspired by the vision he was working on building Hypothes.is -  a way to have sentence level annotation of news and other articles on a web wide scale. Really a foundation for peer review on the web. The motivation for his work is to support greater discernment of the truth around climate change and other key issues facing our society and our planet.  (Another area I could see this being really useful right now is around accountability in the financial system and ways to make that real.)

He asked me to be a part of the project as an advisor particularly around identity issues and technology options for identity.  He is taking my advice and coming to IIW this coming week.  Its an honor to be amongst other distinguished advisors like Brewster Kahle,  John Perry Barlow,  Mark Surman and others..

He has been working on a development plan and has a solid on one in place.  He has launched a Kickstarter Campaign and  stars in the video that articulates the vision of the project.  If you are inspired by the vision I encourage you to contribute.
