In my Interview “Your Online Identity Defines Your Role in the Crowd: Identity Woman builds networks of trust, face-to-face and through Internet Identity” was just posted last week.
I highlighted the differences between *camp ad-hoc way and Open Space Technology and talked about how effective it has been for the Identity commons community. It was a fun interview and I thought it would just be about unconferences however as we got to talking it was clear that user-centric identity played a role in making crowdsourcing really work. I am not a big believer in the power of ‘random groups of people’ solving complex problems. I think persistence of identity over time and context that allows the development of a transaction history or record could really be interesting because it is an architecture that can support the emergence of trust.
It was a pleasure to feel integrated talking about both main themes of my work.
