Massive Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) Video Recap
Editor’s note: I met the guys from BeenVerified at the NYC MatchupCamp last month. We discussed identity and they mentioned they would be attending the IIW. I asked if they would be interested in writing a recap post for all of the awesome CN readers and they agreed. Never did I expect so much awesome video coverage. I will be meeting them next week to learn more about BeenVerified. Thanks guys!
After a fascinating, information overloading, three days at The IIW (Internet Identity Workshop) in Mountain View, California, we are finally back in NYC. The workshop was a conglomerate, a who’s who; of some the brightest minds in Internet Identity Technology from across the globe. There were representatives from every end of the digital spectrum; from non-profits to some of the largest corporations in the world, all collaborating in synergy to discuss how to advance online identity. Ultimately with everyone sharing the same common goal; to try and make online identity easy to understand and manage for every Internet user. One of the most important features of this conference is that there is no predefined agenda. All topics and seminars are created on the fly and can be initiated by anyone in attendance. This unique formula allows for one discussion topic in one seminar to lead to an entirely new seminar on any of the evolving relative issues.
The BeenVerified.com team was in attendance to attain and exchange knowledge and see if there was anyway for us to educate the general public on some of the various protocols, projects, and companies involved. So we figured what better way then to hear explanations from the leaders of these initiatives themselves. Here is our video diary of a number of really exceptional forward thinking individuals.
