Adding another Hat

When I told a friend that I was “adding yet another hat” by taking on the Interim Executive Director role at the Information Card Foundation, he said I had so many hats it reminded him of this children’s book. I haven’t read it (and probably won’t — my kids are into Da Vinci Code and Ender’s Game now).

Quite a few of those hats came from helping start  non-profits in the Internet identity industry. However this is the first time I’ve stepped into the E.D. role, and all those hats are part of the reason. I really do feel it’s time to move the industry towards convergence. I believe a selector-based identity model can get us there, and I’ll be reaching out to all the communities I’ve been part of — and others I haven’t yet been part of — to help get us there.

Look for lots of new things coming out of the ICF in the next few months.
