Great Start today at IIW
We had a very enjoyable day today at the Internet Identity Workshop http://www.internetidentityworkshop.com/
I presented the Label to a warm reception and some great contributions. A few additional terms were suggested and I expect they will make it into the draft specification. We also had some good questions pointing out things we can clarify in our presentation. All around, a highly productive session.
We also discovered some possible synergy with Drummond Reed and others who have developed an idea called Personal Data Rights Language (PDRL), a sort of Creative Commons approach to simplifying Terms of Service and online Privacy Policies. It's early, but if we can use it, it would make a great addition to the Label. Simpler and more standard means clearer and more easily understood. We learn more tomorrow: Drummond is going to lead a session on PDRL and we'll explore how we might collaborate.
It's the energy and collaborative spirit of events like IIW that make this kind of work so rewarding!
