So it’s the name that I chose for the blog. I would never call myself an Identity Expert because that assumes that I am the expert on identity. I studied it for my doctoral dissertation. I have done a bunch … Continue reading

Facebook – at their conference this week – just laid out new features. One of which is even more connectedness with friends and their likes.

So much is going on with identity. You can take your Facebook identity to other sites now. You don’t have to sign up for that site because you can do so with your Facebook identity. It is the same with Open Id, your Google identity, or your Twitter name. Your identity is transferable – because let’s face it – you’re transferable.
Of course, the technologists have been talking about this for years.
