Eve Maler called it a “swirling nexus”. That’s appropriate for both the weather and the dance of discussions at an informal meeting last week between SAMListas (Eve’s term) and OpenIDear’s (my term) hosted by JanRain last week in Portland. Eve blogs it here and David Recordon here.
Eve’s writeup is so comprehensive that I don’t have much to add, other than to say that that more than ever the forces pushing us towards a fully converged Internet identity layer are gaining momentum. See my next post for more.
