Event Details

Directions to Yahoo's HQ:

The OpenID Summit will be held in Building E, which is directly across the street from Yahoo's main entrance. Unfortunately, parking at Building E is very limited, so most attendees will have to park at the main campus, and walk across the street. Tell the guard at the main entrance that you're here for the OpenID Summit, and the guard will direct you to find parking.

When you get to the Building E lobby, tell the receptionist that you're attending the OpenID Summit, and that you want to go to classrooms 9&10. The classrooms are on the 1st floor. Your host is Allen Tom.


The OpenID Summit will be held at Yahoo HQ in Sunnyvale, CA, the day before the Internet Identity Workshop. The OpenID Summit is intended for OpenID Foundation Members and active community members. This event is not suitable for people are looking for an introduction to OpenID.

Due to space considerations, attendance is limited to 60 people.

All attendees are strongly encouraged to attend the Internet Identity Workshop on November 3-5. The Internet Identity Workshop is intended for a much broader audience, and many discussions that start at the Summit will continue at IIW.

The first half of the Summit will consist of discussions/presos that are of general interest to the OpenID community, while the 2nd portion of the summit will consist of breakout sessions on different tracks for more specialized topics.

Suggestions for the Agenda should be posted to the OpenID General Mailing list, or sent to atom [at]

11:30 - 12:30


(Wraps and sandwiches will be served. Vegetarian options are available).

What an RP Wants: Part 2
Chair: Joseph Smarr (Plaxo)

Joseph will be performing the highly anticipated sequel to "What an RP Wants"

What still needs to be solved before it really does make good business sense for more mainstream sites to adopt OpenID? Some of those issues are ux (return sign-in ux, nascar, etc) but many are technical or architectural (dealing with desktop/mobile/api as an rp, account recovery when an op dies, being able to contact rp users directly, etc) and I want to see if we can agree on what the remaining "big stones" out there are, and devise some plans to start clearing them.

3:30 Light Snacks will be served
3:30 - 5:30

Business, Strategy, and Marketing Track

The primary objective of the Business, Strategy, and Marketing Track will be to get clarity and agreement on what the OIDF and member companies should be doing, beyond what the technical committees are doing, to help promote adoption and usage of OpenID.

TBD Track

A third classroom will be available for OpenID Summit attendees to meet informally while the other two tracks are active.
