Dick Hardt's Identity 2.0 OSCON Talk A Must SeeLast night a friend tipped me off to a video he said I must watch. Being that Finley (my youngest) had a 103 temperature and I had just come back from a Lab School meeting in which I wanted to strangle the parent educator, I wasn't too keen on watching some doofus talk about Identity 2.0 or anything having to do with Web 2.0 or anything with 2.0 on the end of it whatsoever. However, you know where this is going, I decided I'd give Dick Hardt 30 seconds to impress me with his talk and if I wasn't impressed then the laptop was going to be shut down for the rest of the evening.
It didn't take 30 seconds, the first 10 seconds had me [well the first 10 seconds after the introduction by the moderator]. Dick's talk was quite impressive and well thought out. It's perhaps one of the best talks I've seen given in quite some time and I encourage all of you to take a look at it. I also encourage you to learn more about Sxip as well as think about the web services / api movement we're in right now. The internet is a shifting and it's not just the ad spend and marketing that's shifting, it's the whole focus of data, where it's stored, how it's used and who's controlling it. Dick Hardt's talk will get you thinking a bit about it but after you see his talk you need to think about the mechanics of it and that's when your mind will really begin to see where we're going online and where your VC dollars and market research needs to be applied.
Ping me with any questions you have with regards to the mechanics, I'd be happy to see and respond to them.
