Hi All,

Today on the telecon, we decided to enter a position paper in to the 
Identity in the Browser Workshop [1], focussed on WebID.

Jeff Sayre kindly took on an action to start the position paper.

I'd suggest that it would be good for anybody who has the time to 
contribute to writing or reviewing this paper, as the process is very 
good for getting a firm understanding of WebID and what we're all doing 

Hopefully, if we focus on this over the next 3 weeks, together with 
updating the wiki and writing introductory text for those new to WebID, 
then we should, as a group, be able to all get on a level where we have 
a firm understanding, are used to working together and seeing a product 
through to completion, and it should stand us all in good stead to move 
forwards :) [or that's my theory anyway!).

Additionally, if anybody has any thoughts on how WebID relates to any of 
the specific Topics (see [1]) which the workshop, then comments or 
suggested text to this effect would be most beneficial, for the paper 
and us all I'm sure.

General paper / identity-ws specific notes follow:
- anybody may of course submit a paper on their own behalf, related to 
webid, or more general topics.
- Henry has suggested describing "a buzzword compliant identity system", 
  together with Harry Halpin's (from the Federated Social Web Group) 
suggestion of keeping the paper Sem Web Light, this could prove to be an 
ideal approach which lends to keeping things light and general, rather 
than getting in to technical details.
- Somebody (who? Henry?) suggested that showing how WebID works with 
current well known and implemented technologies is a good focus.
- A talk on the paper could be presented at the Workshop, a rough scheme 
for which could be:
   1) Buzzword Compliant Description (as above)
   2) WebID overview / description
   3) Demo's
   4) Suggested implementation improvements / considerations (for 
browsers etc)
