But the competition is making the same point. Validly. WE all know identity
is worth solving. It's a billion dollar industry ... already!

Now show class, and set up a negotiation space. Ensure folks a space of
alternatives is laid out, and you can fit in with others when the mediating
comes. One has to know: on what topics one can give.

In the US, folks rarely study philosophy. They almost always study politics
cum philosophy, so it fits the nature of a society which is typically brash
and uncouth - but rather good nonetheless at finding compromises for huge
social problems).

Very nice!

Observations re. diagram:

1. step #2 is missing arrow (inbound) from "resource server" to Bob's
browser is missing re. authentication challenge 2. step #3 is missing arrow
(outbound) indicating what happens after "OK" button is clicked.

Re. OpenID, accentuating OpenID+WebID will help i.e., implying that OpenID
implementers benefit immediately from WebID. It's less politically thorny
than implying OpenID is inadequate (even though we know it is etc..).
