Tzviya Siegman,

I updated the example here: https://w3c-ccg.github.io/verifiable-news/journalistic-html-metadata.html .

It may be possible for users to include their ORCID's in their DID records. “In addition to publication of cryptographic key material, the other primary purpose of DID records is to enable discovery of service endpoints for the identity owner. A service endpoint may represent any type of service the identity owner wishes to advertise, including decentralized identity management services for further discovery, authentication, authorization, or interaction.” https://w3c-ccg.github.io/did-spec/#service-endpoint-references-(optional)

Credentials Community Group,

Here’s an idea for how we could extend the HTML metadata system and models to facilitate the use of DID’s to indicate authors, editors, contributors and organizations pertinent to HTML journalistic content:

    <meta name="model:author" content="did:example:ebfeb1f712ebc6f1c276e12ec21" />
    …journalistic content…

I’m writing with my chair of the publishing working group [1] hat on. Do you see this replacing ORCID [2], which is primarily used in the scholarly publishing world?
