This is an interesting article on Jeremie Miller's next project, Singly.
Jeremie was the key architect behind XMPP. It seems that a big part of
what Singly will be doing revolves around identity management and control.
We should get in touch we them to make sure they know about WebID.

On a related note, I get the feeling, from the little time I've spent on
the Federated Social Web IG to date, that most of the time when WebID is
brought up, people gloss over. There are several prominent identity
experts on that group and they appear to show little interest each time it
is mentioned. One of these people is quoted in the above article link.

I'm not sure if this is because they are not familiar with WebID or if
politics are involved. They may have their own identity vision and/or
agenda to push and are not interested in recognizing "competing" visions.
Of course, my statement makes it clear that I have an agenda as well!

The point is that we need to do a better job at proselytizing other
user-centric identity proponents to the virtues of WebID, showing them how
WebID can play a part in many of the other identity visions.
