We had a packed house yesterday at VRM Day 2013a — more than fifty people — prepping for IIW , which starts today and runs for two more at the Computer History Museumin Mountain View.
IIW is an unconference. No keynotes, no panels, no sponsors controlling the agenda. At the beginning of each day, particpants (who aren’t just “attendees”) choose the topics they want to talk about, and from there on it’s all breakout sessions in separate rooms. So here are some of the session candidates we put up on the whiteboard(and also on the wiki at the first link above):
- Personal Clouds in general
- Interoperability mapping
- How to get 4th parties interested in verticals, e.g. health care, government, retail) “Medicine cabinet” instead of wallets
- What average joe/jane use case(s) will drive adoption?
- Use case deep dive — An active session, attendees simulate the use case communications between the device, pcloud, vendor, etc.
- Next-gen SSO (e.g.Persona)
- Legal Hacks & License harmonization
- Wallets & apps for transactions, photos, etc. Bitcoin as a VRM money clip, safe deposit box… (see session from the last IIW)
- Tracking and ad blocking, and harmonizing methods and experiences
- Bringing 4th parties into verticals, e.g…
- Health Care VRM — “medicine cabinets” rather than “wallets”
- Real estate
- Banking (including credit cards, payments, transactions)
- Sovereign vs./+ Administrative identities
- Terms and policies (Customer Commons’ work, plus Patient Privacy Rights)
- Symbols (e.g. around privacy)
- XDI + KRL, messaging & events
- Internet of me and my things
- Drummond, for Respect Network:
- Discovery “DNSSIC for #pclouds”
- Respect Connect “Facebook connect without the downsides”
- Dictionary seminars
- Personal data pain points, e.g. filling out forms
- Collect useful techs/APIs
There are lists within that list, but my patience and connectivity aren’t up to it, so I’ll leave that be for now.
