Identity Services Panel at Burton Catalyst ’07

October 24, 2007

I didn’t realize that my friend Gerry Gebel had taken pictures of the Identity Services panel I was on at Burton’s Catalyst in SF this past June.

There is a lot of interest in Identity Services and we all agreed that the only real way to ensure its success, at least sooner rather than later, is to work together as vendors on the definition and then compete on implementation.

Mark Diodati, who chaired the panel (just outside the camera’s reach), was planning to bring both customers and vendors together, which I hope still happens.

Thanks again, Gerry!
