Allan Schiffman and Rohit Khare partcipated in the Identity Gang’s recent Internet Identity Workshop in Berkeley, CA. CommerceNet even sponsored a reception and dinner for the 80-person event that attracted a great many of the names you’ve heard in the “Identity 2.0” space, from startups and researchers to megacorps and portals.

At this Thursday Tech Talk. we’ll recap what we learned from the presentations and the second day’s open discussions and lightning-BOFs, including the slightly-controversial theme, “how much of the problem can we solve with better browsers and without new server protocols?” and Allan’ session on “Nyms & Associations, not Names & Claims.”
