Subject: IIW conference in May
To: "board at openid.net" <board at openid.net>

Just a reminder that the coordinators of the Internet Identity Workshop are
trying to get 75 people registered by April 1 (one week), and they are only
about 1/3 of the way there.  Historically the OpenID board has met at this
conference, and it has also been a good chance for members of the OpenID
community to meet.  I'd like to suggest that someone on the board add a post
to the OpenID blog mentioning this event to try to get word out.  I am also
going to send mail directly to the general OpenID & OAuth mailing lists.
 Yesterday I posted<http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.com/2009/03/why-googlers-attend-internet-identity.html>
this at the Google Security blog and earlier this month Mike Jones also

So what do we do at IIW's? People from a diverse range of projects dive in
and get work done.  Lots of different groups come together and use the face
time to sync their work with others - learn what is happening and solve
problems.  You can ask the folks on this list who have attended what they
have gotten out of the event.  I included a list of projects that have
people there and get work done - it is kind of amazing.

The thing that links all the work together at this workshop is is this
notion of "user-centricity" or "user-driven services". Technically how
people can manage their own identity and data and relationship information
across the range of websites, services, companies and organizations.

We also as a community understand this is not just technical - there are a
bunch of social and legal issues that aries too and we try to address them.
For this particular conference we are going to also focus some attention on
what are business models are that can make this ecology of web services

The heart of the workshop is a practical idealism in working towards the
shared vision of a decentralized, user-oriented identity layer for the
