"Who’s who, what’s what and who gets access to what is the biggest challenge on the planet today."

As usual, McNealy has a way a capturing hyperbolically one of the truisms at the intersection of technology and society. In 1999 called consumer privacy issues a red herring, proclaiming that "you have zero privacy anyway...get over it." The planet has many challenges, and although I wouldn't put digital identity management at the top of the list, it looms large as a barrier to fulfilling the promise of the Internet.
