Talk @ Web 2.0 Expo: Mashing Up with User-Centric Identity

Praveen and I are going to tag-team in Mashing Up with User-Centric Identity,  at Web 2.0 Expo. It's about how to leverage user centric identity to combine services in a seamless way:
In a Web 2.0 world, users combine services from many providers. Havinga common identity across providers eliminates a barrier to entry andadopting a user-centric identity system puts the user in control of howtheir information is combined. This session is about the opportunitiesand issues involvedspecifically with adopting open protocols, the solutions they provide,and open issues that remain to be solved. These include userexperience, permission management, and mashup API authentication.
Unfortunately this conflicts with David Recordon's Implementing OpenID talk at the same time, which is likely to be really good and draw a similar crowd.  (Could we simulcast?)

Date: Wednesday, April 18
Time: 1:00pm - 1:50pm
Location: Room 2014, Web 2.0 Expo, San Francisco CA
