The 16th IIW (Internet Identity Workshop) is coming up, Tuesday to Thursday, 7-9 May, will be tat the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. As usual, VRM will be a main topic, with lots of developers and other interested folk participating. Also as usual, we will have a VRM planning day on the Monday preceding: 6 May, also at the CHM. So that’s four straight days during which we’ll get to present, whiteboard, discuss and move forward the many projects we’re working on. From the top of my head at the moment:
- Personal Clouds, including —
- The Internet of Me and My Things
- QS (Quantified Self) and Self-Hacking
- Fully personal wallets, rather than branded ones that work only with payment silos and their partners
- Intentcasting — where customers advertise their purchase intentions in a secure, private and trusted way, outside of any vendor’s silo
- Browser add-ons, extensions, related developments
- Licensing issues
- Sovereign and administrative identity approaches, including Persona, formerly BrowserID, from Mozilla
- Legal issues, such as creating terms and policies that individuals assert
- Tracking and ad blocking, and harmonizing methods and experiences
- Health Care VRM
- Devices, such as the freedom box
- VRM inSovereign vs./+ Administrative identities
- Real estate
- Banking (including credit cards, payments, transactions)
- Personal data pain points, e.g. filling out forms
- Trust networks
- Harnessing adtech science and methods for customers, rather than only for vendors
The morning will be devoted to VRM issues, while the afternoon will concentrate on personal clouds.
We still have eight tickets left here. There is no charge to attend.
In the next few days here on the blog we’ll be going over some of the topics above. Input welcome.
