Season's greetings

By davebirch posted Dec 24 2007 at 9:27 AM
[Dave Birch] Season's greetings and all the best for 2008. I hope you enjoy a break as much as I do, so in the European fashion I'm off for a few days and I look forward to catching up with you all again in the New Year.

Live from London

By davebirch posted Nov 21 2007 at 10:37 PM
[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.

[Dave Birch] The blook that we put together for the Digital Money Forum turned out to be rather popular. As one of our consulting clients put it, we'd accidentally invented the perfect business product for the tube! So we've done the same for the Digital Identity Forum. Jane Adams and I have taken the "best" (in an utterly subjective contest) posts on the Digital Identity Forum blog over the last year or so, organised and edited them, indexed them and turned them into a blook: a book made from a blog. The blook is the "The Digital Identity Reader 2007" and all delegates to the eighth annual Digital Identity Forum in London on November 20th and 21st -- sponsored by the kind, wise, good people at CPP, CoreStreet and ACI Worldwide -- will receive a complimentary copy. Less fortunate persons can still order it from Amazon.

Come and join in the conversation

By davebirch posted Oct 30 2007 at 6:47 PM
[Dave Birch] If you fancy listening to some single sign-on vendors presenting product features and calling them a strategic vision for the future of identity management then you have plenty of conferences to choose from. If, on the other hand, you fancy joining in intelligent conversation and genuine debate about the future of identity in a networked world, you'll probably want to come along to our annual Digital Identity Forum in three weeks' time. There are presentations and expert panels featuring representatives from the Home Office, UCL, Identity & Passport Services, Visa, Oxford Internet Institute, ACI Worldwide, University of Surrey, Garlik, CoreStreet, EMAP, Hitachi Europe, Valimo, DEMOS, Ping Identity, Sun, Bournemouth University, ARM, CPP, the Mobile Data Association and the National Policing Improvement Agency. They'll be covering subjects ranging from the use of digital signatures in Turkish mobile phones to the potential for authentication as a business in its own right. But most of all they'll be continuing the Digital Identity Forum's tradition of open, friendly and informed discussion. And there's a pub quiz too! What's not to like! And they're virtually giving away the delegate places for the miniscule sum of 445 pounds plus VAT.

It's sort of embarassing

By davebirch posted Nov 9 2006 at 10:01 AM

[Dave Birch] I probably shouldn't do this, but I have had such nice e-mails from people who attended to the Forum last week that I wanted to post a few quotes here as a way of saying thank you to everyone who came along and made it what it was: a place for genuine discussion, debate and learning.  And thanks again to Fujitsu, ACI Worldwide, CoreStreet and Royal Mail for getting behind the event: we couldn't have done it without them.

Fantasy panel

By davebirch posted Aug 16 2006 at 10:52 AM

[Dave Birch]  A couple of weeks ago the House of Commons Select Committee on Science and Technology released the report of its investigation into the handling of scientific advice with respect to the UK's proposed national identity card.  This brought me the traditional 15 seconds of fame, as I was one of the six non-government witnesses examined by the committee.  Anyway, the chairman of the committe, Mr. Phil Willis  M.P., has kindly agreed to come along to the Forum in November to take part in the "Fantasy National ID Card" expert panel.
