Alex Barnett and I were fortunate enough to get two of the foremost Identity thinkers on board at the same time for a podcast recently.

  • Dick Hardt is Founder and CEO of Sxip Identity, and is well-known for his Identity 2.0 talk he gave at the OSCon and Web 2.0 Conferences.
  • Kim Cameron is the Chief Identity Architect at Microsoft, and is well-known for his Laws of Identity whitepaper.

Both Dick and Kim are amazing thinkers and way out ahead of the curve on Identity. They’re doing great work on Identity, and will certainly be close by the solution to our Identity problems when it finally takes hold. It was very fun to talk to them, or rather to try to keep up with them!

The podcast is in two parts:

  • Part 1 (28MB), including what’s the biggest problem we have to solve in identity? (notes)
  • Part 2 (26MB), including ruminations on what e-commerce sites might want for attention data (notes)

Interestingly, for this podcast I was using Skype, while the rest of the folks were using landlines/cellphones. As you’ll hear, I lost connection for a while, but isn’t it really cool what we can do with technology now? I think so. Also, thanks again to Alex for doing the legwork on the post-production!
