Hey! I’ll be chairing a session tomorrow at the Digital Identity Forum event here in London. The topic of the session (which leads off the two-day event) is “Next Generation Digital Identity.” My interest in digital identity is in the abstract sense — how will people think about and manage the aspects of their identity as those aspects increasingly become digital assets? Can we overcome some of the basic issues around identity management in the online and offline world that exist today with better application of technology? I believe that we can, but I think this also means that people need to become more savvy about how they manage their digital identity when the tools are made available for them to do so.
I am really looking forward to this event, especially as it’s being organized by David Birch from Consult Hyperion who gave such a great talk at June’s Mobile Monday (available on the Podcast).
