Internet Identity Workshop comes to DC!
Theme: Open Identity for Open Government.
Internet Identity Workshop East (IIW-East) is September 9-10, 2010 in Washington DC at the Josephine Butler Parks Center. This event immediately follows the Gov 2.0 Summit.
The Internet Identity Workshop has been held semi-annually in California since the Fall of 2005. The 10th IIW which happened in May was the largest thus far. There have been many requests to have an IIW on the East coast, and now the Open Identity for Open Government Initiative is providing a timely basis to have one in Washington.
IIWs focus on “user-centric identity”, addressing the technical and adoption challenge of how people can manage their own identity across the range of websites, services, companies, government agencies and organizations with which they interact. IIW-East will focus mainly on the government adoption of open identity technologies for use by government websites.
