Explanation of Identity,

David Weinberger gives a clear summary of what the Identity movement is all about. At the heart of all of this is "single sign-in," meaning that wherever you go online, all the information you'd need to give to join any group, purchase any product, fill in any profile, goes with you. What makes that different than a commercialized expedient like Gator, is that the Identity packet is not only several magnitudes more sophisticated than simple password/login/contact/credit card information, but the sites themselves have agreed with eachother to set themseves up to be prepared to receive your Identity cluster when you arrive. This way they recognize you, know what you want and what you don't want. Andre and others are looking at ways this will apply to social networks, and that's where Wondir could engage.
