Well done Lisa – I think that you handled the AG group well and you managed to turn around a lot of people to our authentication proposal.

It is now obvious why people were so negative to all our reference to “copying”. We were thinking of people looking at something presented to them and then entering the same letters into an input field whereas they were thinking of copy and paste operations! Changing “copy” to “transcribe” seemed to be the key to bringing our intentions and their understanding into line. So that’s definitely another big thank you to Alastair Campbell for identifying this important distinction!

Also of course thanks to John Rochford for his hard work and timely answering of comments before the AG meeting.

Best regards
