Interview with Dick Hardt

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from "IT Conversations", in which Scott Mace talked with Dick Hardt, Founder and CEO of Sxip Identity. In this discussion, Mr. Hardt talks about Identity 2.0. This podcast was posted to the web on 27 October 2004 at:

The show notes included the following:

"Dick Hardt begins his talk with a brief overview of notions of identity and how that compares with what is actually required in an increasingly digitised world. According to Hardt, Identity 2.0 is definitely coming, but in what shape and delivered by what technologies remains unknown and unknowable at the moment. Hardt differentiates Identity 1.0 from Identity 2.0 by describing the move from a directory centric environment where authentication means simply that your identity is registered on a web site's directory to a user centric environment where an identity can truly be applied to a variety of web sites. He believes this will happen because the recent history of technological initiatives shows that open and simple wins out."

If you haven't seen Mr. Hardt's presentation at the Web 2.0 conference yet, it is well worth viewing - see:
