What is David Doing this Week?

Yesterday flew from San Francisco to London along with Kaliya Hamlin. We're both over here for an ITU-T Focus Group meeting on Identity Management. About 60+ people here and today various people are presenting on technologies related to identity. Just spoke about OpenID...my slides are up at http://openid.net/pres/2007_ITU-T_IdM_FG.pdf. Here through the end of the week...lots of cool stuff I hadn't heard about before.

Saturday we then fly to London and are staying with the gracious Ben Laurie. Hoping to head out to a pub with mart as well that night.

Sunday I'm headed to BarCamp2 along with Chris Messina and his wife Tara Hunt..

Monday is an identity workshop put together by the Identity Society which Kaliya is facilitating. If you're in London and free that day you should come!

Then looks like I'll be attending The Future of Web Apps the following Tuesday and Wednesday where Simon Willison is talking about OpenID!

All in all, a busy two weeks!

oh, also just played with FreeYourID which is awesome since it just works!

Great that you liked freeyourid.com / .name
Any suggestions on how to improve the freeyourID service toolkit would be much appreciated.

Enable domain (instead of subdomain) registrations!

on .name you can register domain names on the third level and they are Registry delegated. You can transfer them and own them like a .com address. You can also get an email address without registering a domain, like peter@morgan.name. This is also owned and transferrable like a domain.

If you register a .name address on www.freeyourid.com you own your domain/email just like you would own e.g. Shechtman.com.

The difference with .name and .com is that the Registry (we) share a lot of the names so many people can use them, like smith.name or jones.name, (and soon all the two-character names too), which are very common names and therefore interesting to share worldwide. Agree that most advanced users would see that as less interesting than owning the entire second level, but mass market users find full value of first@last.name and first.last.name, and the Internet benefits from better availability of names.
