The Internet Identity Workshop XVIII #18 - 2014A
May 6, 7 and 8, 2014
Computer History Museum - Mountain View, CA
Why you should come
Do you care about privacy in the Age of Surveillance? (You should.) Do you want to do something about it? Are you already doing something about it? IIW is where you get to meet and work alongside others tackling the same issues.
Or let's say you care about new forms of money (such as Bitcoin) and what the geeks call distributed has and crypto ledgers. IIW is for you too.
Same goes for everybody working on:
- Personal clouds, stores, lockers, vaults and other first person data systems and services
- The Internet of Things
- VRM (Vendor Relationship Management)
- Data liberation and portability
- Distributed trust frameworks
- Non-coercive legal agreemenst
- Personal sovereignty
- Heterarchy vs. Hierarchy
- The Indie Web
- Earned (rather then coerced customer loyalty
- Marketing when customers hold most of the cards
IIW is an un-conference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it's about getting stuff done
The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Doors will open at 8:00 each day with espresso and light breakfast.
Tuesday Day 1 will begin at 9:00AM with introduction/orientation followed by Agenda Creation. There will be 5 working sessions
Wednesday Day 2 will have agenda creation beginning at 9:00AM. There will be 5 working sessions and a Demo Hour after lunch.
Thursday Day 3 Will begin at 9:00AM with agenda setting. There will be 5 working sessions and we will end by 4pm.
How does it work
After the brief introduction on the first day we create the agenda when we are face to face the first each morning of the conference. We do this in part because the field is moving so rapidly that the organizing team are in no position to know what needs to be talked about. We do know great people who will be there and it is the attendees who have a passion to learn and contribute to the event that make it the success it is.
For a good idea about how this works, take a look at this Video Montage of IIW #15 created by TechGoddessJudith. You can find Books of Proceedings for all previous IIW Events here
IIW is the place where everyone from a diverse range of projects doing the real work of making this vision happen gathers and works intensively for three days. It is the best place to meet and participate with all the key people and projects! As a community we have been exploring these kinds of questions:
- How are social networking sites and social media tools applying user-centric identity?
- What are the open standards to make it work? (identity and semantic)
- What are technical implementations of those standards?
- How do different standards and technical implementations interoperate?
- What are the new social norms and legal constructs needed to make it work?
- What tools are needed to make it usably secure for end-users?
- What are the businesses cases / models that drive all this?
