The Identity Movement

I checked out both the David Weinberger and Doc links Britt sent me. I'm still an infant when it comes to the intricacies of the identity movement, not to mention Britt's own emerging contribution, but I feel that social networks, and Wondir is a social network at one level, need to cooperate with the movement because as Durand points out social networks have to extract information from each new member, and that information is almost always minimal, immediately outdated and almost never renewed, a very inefficient system (but until an identity standard comes along it's the only one we have). Looking forward to learning more. I wonder if it would make sense for Wondir to sign up with Ping ID, and if that's compatible with participating in XpertWeb. All the identity contributions should be compatible I would think. Hopefully a standard will emerge that's open-source, decentralized, perhaps p2p and self-controlled. Maybe too idealistic but one can at least have an aim.
