Had a great meeting hosted by FedEx at their Memphis HQ last week, covering research deliverables from the second half of 2009 and planned agenda for 2010.
One of the hot topics was (and is) Digital Identity. There was an interesting post on this subject in the NY Times Bits blog this morning, basically saying that Baby Boomers will be a force in promoting greater rule of law on the internet – see: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/12/07/what-do-baby-boomers-want-from-technology/
I wrote about the private implications of the advances in digital identity and the notion of individuals clawing back greater control in a post in our Wikinomics blog. See: http://www.wikinomics.com/blog/index.php/2009/12/03/monetizing-your-digital-self/
There is a tremendous amount of activity in this area, with healthcare legislation being a big “mover” in what happens with digital identity management and adoption in coming years. Other thoughts?
