European Workshop on Trust & Identity in Feb

I’m going to Vienna in Febuary to work with Rainer and Marks on an event they are pulling together (and invited me to help with).

The European Workshop on Trust and Identity 

February 12-13 in Vienna.

Registration is here.

Internet identity, identity federation and personal data online are complex, continually evolving areas. The event is inspired by similar events such as the Internet Identity Workshop(external link) in California, Identity North in Canada, and Identity Next in the Netherlands, with a focus on European perspectives and initiatives. At EWTI participants will seek deeper understanding, and better solutions to challenges like:

  • Technology. Developing feasible and open standards.
  • Trust Frameworks. Establishing new paradigms and policy sets.
  • Usability. How can users navigate different identities and understand their data?
  • Economy. How can identity services fit into businesses requirements and opportunities for all stakeholders?
  • Interoperability. On which levels and areas is interoperability necessary or feasible? This is a cross-cutting concern for technical, legal and business views.
  • Deployment and operation. How can different options be supported and exploited in the best way, given the whole range of places and devices.
  • EU project challenges. The European Commission’s projects related to trust and identity like STORK and eID regulation are landmarks on the roadmap. How do other actors relate to and utilize those projects?

Besides discussing specific topics in the above areas, there will also be plenty of opportunities for networking among solution providers and seekers, startups, investors and technology pundits. EIW provides a place where skilled people from a wide range of functions and projects in the identity ecosystem gather and work intensively for two days. The unconference format puts into the foreground what is important for the participants. How much attention topics receive is driven by active participation. Results will be collected and published at the and as proceedings. After the brief introduction on the first day there are no formal presentations, no keynotes, no panels. What happens then? We will make the schedule when we are face to face the first day of the conference. We use a method called Open Space Technology to support unconference where the topics most important to the participants that day are discussed. How much attention topics receive is driven by active participation. This supports a self-organized and self-responsible group unleashing the great creativity and passion of the participants. Results from sessions will be collected and published at the end as proceedings.

Communicate Across Initiatives

There are numerous IDM-related efforts and projects in both private and public sector. EIW is a place for direct talks skipping hours of time-consuming powerpoint presentations. Take the opportunity to form the contents yourself!

Looking Ahead to 2013

The month of January I’m spending at home in the Bay Area and focused on a few key things:

  • Working with Phil Wolff and Jean Russell on key systems for the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium with an emphasis on the Startup Circle, Personal Cloud Gathering around the country, Educational Seminars and preparing to launch the Open Protocol Wire (to track all the open protocols relevant to the emerging space).
  • Doing year long planning and business development for the Unconference design, facilitation and production company with Bill Aal, Jennifer Holmes and Jean Russell.
  • Visioning how all the interests and themes I have been engaged with in my life’s work are woven together in this coming year – a few more posts will follow to share current ideas/reflections.
The year will include:
  • Focusing on my personal human form sustainability and happiness.
  1. Including making space for bodily healing and regeneration
  2. moving and exercising
  3. growing my relationships with my chosen family
  4. spending quality and extended time with good friends
  5. making time for my art
  6. creating a beautiful and nurturing home environment
  7. having time to think and be away from home
  8. completing life homework (paperwork) that has been put off to long
  9. consciously connecting to my spiritual self
  10. reflecting and connecting with my ancestors and sharing more about them online
  • Growing the Personal Data Ecosystem into a Thriving Community and Organization Supporting it. 
  1. Spending more time with the Personal Data Ecosystem startups and growing the number we serve.
  2. Offering Seminars to get individuals, companies and funders up to speed.
  3. Getting great informational synthesis systems in place for news updates, white papers, events etc.
  4. Developing peer educational opportunities across the ecosystem (podcasts, webinars etc).
  5. Growing the number of Personal Cloud Meetups happening
  6. Helping coordinate joint activities and conversations including engaging with governments as they look at regulation.
  7. Working with Evan Prodromo and others on making real mutli-code base, open standards based interoperable Federated Social Web.
  8. Developing some socially responsible investing SRI and Corporate Social Responsibility guidelines for technology that go beyond “is the electricity in your data center green”
  9. Figuring out how
  • Engaging with the NSTIC process including attending the Phoenix meeting in early February (you are invited too). 
  1. Working with Aestetix on the NymRights efforts within and beside NSTIC.
  2. Completing the work of the holistic picture subcommittee I lead and seeing what is next.
  3. Working on getting citizen advocates who are diverse engaged in the  process
  4. Continuing to advocate for and provide ideas about how to actually put into practice inclusive, easy to participate in processes for NSTIC that get input from a broad range of stakeholders AND create enough space for industry folks used to enterprise identity management to actually “get” that this isn’t about employee provisioning and termination.
  5. Inviting a focus within NSTIC to listening and responding to the complex system of the existing and emerging identity ecosystem rather then pursuing “plans” developed in committees of self appointed experts.
  6. Considering running again for the NSTIC Management Council seat in the elections coming up this spring.
