Kaliya Hamlin, Doc Searls, and I are planning an identity open space on Monday Sept. 11, 2006 in Santa Clara in conjunction with Digital ID World. DIDW starts Monday afternoon and we're going to do 3/4's of a day of open space beforehand to talk about user-centric identity. The format will be largely the same as the Internet Identity Workshops that we've been having--just shorter.
If you're coming to DIDW or just in the Bay Area, we'd love to see you there. You can expect good discussion and meetings with people at the fore-front of this emerging area. If you're coming to DIDW and have wondered what all this user-centric identity is about, this is a great way to get up to speed before the conference.
We've put together a registration page for the event. There's a nominal $25 fee to cover the cost of lunch. DIDW is graciously covering the cost of the room and refreshments. They're also offering a discount on the regular DIDW registration fee to IOS participants--$995. Register for DIDW here and use the code H1101 to get the discount. Both DIDW and our open space event will happen at the Santa Clara Marriott.
