Live from London

[Dave Birch] A big thank you to everyone who took part in this year's Digital Identity Forum. The feedback I've already had has been absolutely excellent and I really appreciate the efforts of everyone who made it happen. I'd also like to thank our sponsors for their unconditional support: CPP and CoreStreet for suppporting the event and ACI Worldwide for supporting the pub quiz and tour. And on behalf of the charities that we support with the surplus from the event, thanks to everyone who came along. I like to think that the Forum stands out as being a place for real discussion and debate rather than a standard death-by-Powerpoint commercial event and, once again, the delegates didn't let us down. Thanks to everyone.

One thing we do stand for is having fun, so I was delighted (in fact, surprised and delighted) to have so many people stay on at the end of day one. We arranged for the delegates to go on a tour of the Clink museum and when they came back we had the now traditional Digital Money Pub Quiz (with real beer and crisps). Nearly fifty people took part: table vs. table in the first round general knowledge knock out and then mano a mano in the second round brutal identity-related round. And this year the questions were really, really hard. So many congratulations to the Digital Identity MasterMind 2007, Simon Moore of the National Policing Improvement Agency, who richly deserved the first prize (an iPod to listen to our podcasts with!) and, more importantly, our respect and admiration.

If you'd like to have a go at the quiz yourself, you can download the questions here...

As the newly crowned Digital Identity MasterMind 2007, I feel it incumbent on me to offer my sincere thanks to Dave, Gloria and the team for bringing together this diverse group, facilitating the broad ranging discussion and making sure the debate considered the 'why' and 'what' needs to be done, not just the 'how' we might go about it.
Certainly one of the most interesting events in this space I have been too.
