We are excited about all the developments in the industry with

November 3-5 (Tuesday to Thursday)
  in Mountain View California
at the Computer History Museum.


The Internet Identity Workshop focuses on “user-centric identity” and  
netizen empowerment on the social web trying to solve the technical  
challenge of how people can manage their own identity and social  
activity across the range of websites, services, companies and  
organizations that they belong to, purchase from and participate with.

This is where everyone from a diverse range of projects doing the real- 
work of making this vision happen gather and work intensively for  
three days.  It is the best place to meet and participate with all the  
key people and projects. This is a comprehensive list of the  
technology communities that are covered.    http://iiw.idcommons.net/Iiw9#Who_Participates_in_IIW.3F

The event does not have a pre-set agenda instead as people register  
they are asked what they would like to present about, learn and  
discuss with peers/industry experts.  These are all collected here - http://iiw.idcommons.net/Proposed_Topics_ii9 
.  The first morning of the conference will be introductory  
orientation about key projects and technologies in the community.   
After that the community creates the agenda itself using the Open  
Space Method.  Dinner both Tuesday and Wednesday are a big part of the  

Here are links to notes that cover most of the sessions from the last  
two conferences

* IIW #8 spring of 2009 http://iiw.idcommons.net/Notes_iiw8

* IIW #7 fall of 2008 http://iiw.idcommons.net/Notes_08b

These documents are great resources for convincing your boss of the  
value of this event.

The heart of the workshop is a practical idealism in working towards  
the shared vision of a decentralized, user-oriented identity layer for  
the Internet.

Because the web was built around “pages”, no tools or standards were  
created to control how the information about you was collected or  
used. At the Internet Identity Workshop we bring the people creating  
these tools and standards so people can safely manage their online  
identity and control their personal data.

It is not about any one technology – rather it is a place to discuss  
multiple interoperating (and possible competing)  projects, standards,  
and networks for identity, data sharing, and reputation.

As part of Identity Commons, the Internet Identity Workshop creates  
opportunities for both innovators and competitors. We provide an open  
forum for both the big guys and the small fry to come together in a  
safe and balanced space.

There are a wide range of projects in the community:

Open conceptual, community, and governance models.
Open standards and protocols.
Open source projects.
Commercial projects.
Projects to address social and legal implications of these technologies.
Efforts to rethink the business models and opportunities available  
with these new technologies.
User-centric identity is the ability:

To use one’s identifier(s) on more than one site
To control who sees what information about you
To selectively share presence and profile information
To maintain multiple identities and personas in the contexts you wish
To aggregate attention, navigation, and purchase history from the  
sites and communities you frequent
To move and share your personal data, relationships, documents, and  
other publications as you wish
All of the following are active topic areas at each IIW:

Improving Existing Legal Constructs
Privacy Policies
Terms of Service
Creating New Legal Constructs
Limited Liability Personas
Identity Rights Agreements
Creating New Business Models
Identity Oracle
New Citizenship Perspectives
Community Event Coordination
Community Identity and Data Sharing

The Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) was founded in the fall of 2005  
by Phil Windley, Doc Searls and Kaliya Hamlin.  IIW is a working group  
of Identity Commons The event has been a leading space of innovation  
and collaboration amongst the diverse community working on user- 
centric identity.
