Hello Manu,

Good slides.

One (seemingly) minor remark to the 'Whats' broken?'-slide: Proving who we are is in most cases only required during registration or enrolment. There is quite some resistance to always be personally identified, while there are many good and practical reasons to keep authorization and (real world) identity separate. Could be discussed - taking hours if you will. But I assume this is not what you'd like to do in the plenary...

I would recommend to re-phrase:

If we can't reliably prove we're entitled to do things on the Web, we're probably not doing important things on the web.

Cheers,
	Jörg

Subject: Slides: High-level intro to Credentials (W3C TPAC)

An unconference session has been proposed to introduce the W3C membership to the Credentials initiative on Wednesday at W3C TPAC:

https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2014/SessionIdeas#Credentials_on_the_Web_-_A_10.2C000ft_Overview


There will be 500+ people in attendance at W3C and only around 40-50 of them will be able to make the Monday/Tuesday sessions that will cover Credentials. This introduction to Credentials will be for the other 450+ attendees that may have an interest in the work we're doing here, but won't be able to attend. The slide deck is here:

http://opencreds.org/presentations/2014/tpac-credentials/


Please provide feedback on the slide deck before this coming Friday.

Note that this presentation is different and more high-level/basic than the one that will be given to the Web Payments IG by the Credentials CG during Monday/Tuesday.
