Owen's up

I’m adding another link: Identity Commons founder and president Owen Davis, who together with co-founder Andrew Nelson (who’s still working on his blog) convinced me to become an Identity Commons trustee.

Owen’s done much more than thinking about the requirements of distributed, self-organizing, self-governing trust networks. He’s acted on his convictions, making Identity Commons happen out of sheer determination and an uncanny ability to attract and coalesce the key people and elements necessary to form a global electronic commons.

He’s serious about making it work – and smart enough to constantly question his own assumptions. Watch what happens with it. There’s a power to this form of self-organizing, self-governing network that just may be able to turn the current “tragedy of the commons” on its ear.
