Kim Cameron and the Philosophy of Privacy: (iCards, pt 5)

I’m currently trapped on the six-hour flight out west to join the rest of the Identity crowd at this year’s Internet Identity Workshop, so I thought I’d use the time to write my final post on the history of iCards. Fittingly, the subject of this post is the father (grandfather?) of iCards, Microsoft’s own Identity [...]

Becoming an RP with the Pamela Project (pt. 2)

Okay. So when I last posted I was waiting for my SSL cert to get installed and I left to enjoy the rest of the day with my wife and daughter. Good choice, as there were still a fair number of obstacles ahead of me. When I returned from my walk, the superstars at Bluehost [...]

Becoming an RP with the Pamela Project (pt. 1)

Boy, I must REALLY be insane. Below is picture of this BEAUTIFUL spring day here in NYC, my wife and baby are in the park playing, and I’m sitting on my balcony trying to install the Pamela Project on my blog. The odds are stacked against a glowing review, as iCards are still an emerging [...]

The History of Tomorrow’s Internet: Identity (iCards, pt 5)

Long time, no blog. The whole identity space has been busy with conference season, and I’ve taken the last two weeks to get to know my baby girl Fay again. I am officially back though. Whether that is good or bad is yet to be determined. What is definitely good though, is the topic of [...]

The History of Tomorrow’s Internet: Identity (iCards, pt 4)

I just finished up my three part series on Microsoft’s CardSpace implementation of iCards, but one of the most important things to understand is that CardSpace is just ONE implementation of iCards. The specifications are completely open and in fact, have been implemented in an open source project simultaneously. That project is Higgins and I [...]

The History of Tomorrow’s Internet: Identity (iCards, pt 3)

It’s been over a week since I last posted for a number of reasons, but one of them is because in this post I wanted to explain how it feels for a regular person to use Cardspace. This poses a few challenges as we’ve used Macs exclusively in my work with angel investors at  Angelsoft since we [...]

The History of Tomorrow’s Internet: Identity (iCards, pt 2)

In my last post I wrote about the 7 laws of identity. In this post, I’ll try to explain how Microsoft is implementing these laws through Cardspace. To begin with, we need to take a look at a diagram I posted back in the beginning of this series: As I explained in that post, three [...]

The History of Tomorrow’s Internet: Identity (iCards, pt. 1)

In my OpenID report from SXSW I jumped to OpenID briefly, but I want to cover iCards before continuing down that road. iCards are the generic name (technically just for the client-side technology, but I’m using the term generically to refer to Cardspace and Higgins) for a couple of implementations of what has become known [...]
