Last night I attended a Future Salon presentation about digital and online identities. The event was hosted at SAP in Palo Alto.
Eric Sachs of Google spoke about Google's relatively new entry into the digital identity realm with services such as Orkut and Gmail. Jeff Hodges of Liberty Alliance talked about identity systems in the enterprise marketplace. Fen Labalme of Identity Commons talked about identity systems built at the grassroots level for non-governmental organizations.
I recorded all three speeches as well as the question and answer period using a directional microphone from my seat in the front row.
Just in passing, Scoble's recent piece on geek jewlery was right on target. Coming back from Open Group I sat beside a cat who was flying the full shuffle regalia and did he ever look cool. And happy.
