Dick Hardt’s OSCON Keynote video


I finally got around to watching Dick Hardt’s keynote on Identity 2.0 from the O’Reilly Open Source Conference in August.

Dick’s brilliant presentation style, which violates every rule you ever heard about how to use presentation software, kept me totally engaged at 6:00 am while watching a fifteen minute presentation on what is, let’s face it, not the most scintillating of topics.

Dick credits Lawrence Lessig for inspiration on the style, but I think it’s a direct descendant of Bob Dylan’s brilliant performance of Subterranean Homesick Blues at the beginning of Don’t Look Back.

It’s a whirlwind ride that does a great job of outlining why digital identity management really is a big issue that is extremely important and has a lot of work remaining to be done. Check it out!
