Kaliya Hamlin (aki IdentityWoman) has posted a superbly written and documented article on Fast Company about why no one should freak out about NSTIC (the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace).
If only all dialog about digital identity infrastructure could be that well grounded and reasoned.
There’s a good reason why Kaliya (along with Phil Windley and Doc Searls) runs the Internet Identity Workshop. Hopefully the NSTIC will start shining a light on the importance of what IIW has been producing the past six years.
And check out Kaliya’s work on the Personal Data Ecosystem while you’re at it. (NSTIC is only an opening act for the PDE.)
