In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo),

I interview Fred Stutzman,

co-founder of .

Fred is a Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina, and the co-founder of ClaimID. Originially from Albany, NY, he is currently located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Fred's academic interests include identity representation, social software, the net-generation, and social effects of technology. ClaimID, created by Fred and Terrell Russell, is a step in that direction.

Of particular interest (at least to me) is Fred's description of his research regarding the use of Facebook among college age students and changing conceptions of what privacy means.

Also note that in the weeks since completing this podcast, ClaimID has added MicroID-based link verification, which is going to be an integral part of ClaimID's verification services. To learn more see what Terrell (ClaimID co-founder) has been working on with OpenID and multi-factor authentication – ClaimID is going to seriously turn some heads when we launch this initaitive.

In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo) I interview Jaco Aizenman.

Jaco Aizenman is contributing to the development Virtual Rights, a new set of Human Rights. He serves as a director on the board of XDI.org. He is also the founder and Consortium Development Coordinator of the Free Software Consortium that created the Free Software Act, a new legislation that can protect FLOSS (Free/Libre and Open Source Software) and the CEO of a small internet satellite access provider in Costa Rica.

Mr. Aizenman has worked extensively on Information and Communication Technologies for human development. Among others he had worked on the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank Development Gateway, Lincos, and Gilat. He also led the universalization of the email and website account in Costa Rica.
In this interview we talk about: 1. How he first became interested in digital identity, 2. The four human dimensions, 3. The Digital Identity Metasystem, 4. The Fundamental Human Right of a Digital Identity, 5. How it's seems unlikely that two guys from Central America (me from Guatemala and he from Costa Rica) would appear on a podcast about digital identity.

March 22, 2006

In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo) I interview Robin Wilton, Corporate Architect in Sun Microsystem’s CTO Team.

Robin’s post titled, “Is ‘user-centricity’ the answer to identity fraud?” was the impetus for my interview with him because it addressed some issues related to user-centric identity and various types of liability I’ve been thinking about with regard to identity providers (those entities in the user-centric “model” that will issue claims on behalf of the individuals who use their services).

In this interview Robin describes his job at Sun and we talk in some detail about the concept of user-centricity and how in many contexts intermediaries will necessarily play a role despite end-user control of their “digital identity.”

In this episode of The Story of Digital Identity Logo - Midsize I interview, Dick Hard Founder and CEO of Sxip Identity.

A pioneer in the Internet sector and open source software community, Dick has been active in software development for nearly two decades.

Prior to founding Sxip Identity, Dick founded ActiveState in 1997. Under his leadership as CEO, ActiveState became a leader in open source programming languages and anti-spam software and was acquired by UK-based software company, Sophos in 2003.

His first commercial software work started in 1986 at Consumers Software where he ported one of the first LAN email packages, the Network Courier, to Windows 1.03. He later joined Paradigm Development, which did software consulting for firms such as Aldus, Adobe and Microsoft. In 1993 Dick connected Paradigm to the Internet and later founded hip Communications, which became one of the larger web development and hosting companies in western Canada. While running hip, Dick led the port of Perl 5 to the Windows platform, which resulted in an interest in open source software. hip was sold to a NASDAQ company.

As a successful entrepreneur and technology expert, Dick is very involved in the technology community, speaking at numerous conferences and holding a board position with the Vancouver Enterprise Forum. He previously was on the board of the BCTIA and Ludicorp. He is a Business in Vancouver Top 40 Under 40 award recipient. Dick has also demonstrated leadership in funding the Major Projects Fund for the BC Technology Social Venture Partners, a charitable foundation to support groups serving children, women at risk and people living in Vancouver’s downtown eastside.

Episode #12
February 2, 2006

Interview with John Clippinger, Senior Fellow at The Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School.
In this interview John and I discuss his and Berkman’s interest in digital identity technologies. In particular we talk about the risks promising new technologies face as they become more visible and therefore subject regulatory pressures. More broadly John expresses his desire to “embed” policy in code as a way to shape technology policy before it confronts special interest and other pressures associated with “formal” legislative processes.
