Digital Identity Forum will be on October 15th/16th in London

By Dave Birch posted May 13 2008 at 9:58 AM

[Dave Birch] A date for your diary. We've chosen 15th/16th October for this year's Digital Identity Forum in London. We're looking at a couple of venues and hope to confirm something in the next week or two. The web site will go up tomorrow and I'm looking forward to starting work on the programme soon. As always, constructive suggestions are welcome, but at this time I'm thinking that we should take another look at where the UK is with ID cards (I'm afraid it's the 800lb gorilla), some kind of OpenID/Cardspace "bootcamp" to explain them to a business audience, an update on biometrics and a big session on identity in social networking. And of course, a pub quiz (sponsor please!) and a electronic "Game of Life" for charity, excellent company and conversation.

Now we've already been contacted by one interested potential sponsor but as always we could use another one, so if you are interested in becoming associated with the event -- and earning the undying gratitude of everyone on this blog -- please drop me an e-mail as soon as possible. If you're wondering what image you will attain from this association, here's what a few people said about the event last year...

Thank you for the excellent event.

A sincere thanks to you and the rest of the team for putting on such a fantastic, thought provoking event.

So many great ideas. Many congratulations on a successful event.

I thought you organised a fantastic line up of speakers... the whole thing was thought-provoking, insightful and very enjoyable so thanks.

My heartiest congratulations to you and to Gloria and to all your colleagues for organising such an excellent and mind-stretching conference over the last two days.

Look forward to having you on board this year!
