I just ran across this six-month old Burton group report on the federal eAuthentication initiative. Craig Burton is still talking about authentication and his meeting with Kim Cameron of Microsoft who is discussing the possibility of Mozilla support for Open Identity. Kim thinks of nothing but identity (from Drummond Reed):
"I just want to go on record that Kim is 100% the real thing. Iíve never met anyone like him. The Laws didnít come from any preconceived agenda or marketing spin, they came straight from the heart of Kimís lifetime of messaging and metadirectory experience and his passion for creating a true Internet-wide identity infrastructure that will finally usher in what he calls ďthe big bangĒ Ė the explosion of new applications that will be possible with authenticated online trust relationships"
Drummond collaborates on an extremely interesting article about the Social Web.
