What we found was that pretty much everyone has a (normally differing)
opinion on identity.  If you think about it, it makes sense, we all have
one and it's very personal and subjective.

By the time we went round the room and introduced everyone, with a short
comment, the time was up.  It wasnt really constructive.

Identity seems to be the one issue that divides opinion.  Case in point,
W3C has two groups with almost exactly same goals (WebID + Identity

The more productive things I found at TPAC was actual working demos.

Just my 2 cents ...
