Identity 2.0 Follows Web 2.0

With Web 2.0 ideas getting more and more attention and beginning to see action centered around it, Identity 2.0 follows. The identity 2.0 camp has well known names like Doc Searls,Marc Canter, Phil Windley besides a fewothers associated with it.Dick Hardt, whom Doc calls as the leader of the team,sees Web 2.0 as being the difference between DOS and Windows. In DOS we just used one app at a time, APIs were pretty minimal, there was no dynamic linking of data or components. Windows enabled multiple apps to be running in concert, at least most of the time and holds the notion that Web 2.0 is still emerging. Doc Searls points to Dick Hardts OSCON 2005 talk on identity 2.0 (available in three formats) where Hardt explains that as the online world moves towards Web 2.0, the concept of digital identity is evolving, and existing identity systems are falling behind. New systems are emerging that place identity in the hands of users instead of directories. Simple, secure and open, these systems will provide the scalable, user-centric mechanism for authenticating and managing real-world identities online, enabling truly distinct and portable Internet identities. A good idea - definitely overdue - we shall see a lot more empahasis on this subject in the coming days.
