Last week I was in Colorado for the Defrag and Blur conferences. Defrag bills itself as ‘the premiere thought leader discussions about “what’s coming next” in technology’. And it certainly lived up to the billing, as I attended some great talks from folks like Paul Kedrosky, Jeff Ma, Ray Wang, Jay Simons and Jeff Lawson.
In a post entitled “Freedom of Choice ≠ Your Choice of Captor“, Craig Burton has responded to the part of my previous post where I expressed skepticism about the “profound innovation” in the work Microsoft is doing. I want to be clear: I am not questioning the vision that Kim Cameron has started to talk
Kim Cameron has a vision for where identity management is going, and he has started to lay it out in a series of blog posts, starting with this post on ‘Identity Management as a Service‘ (where he unfortunately reopened the IDaaS vs IDMaaS acronym debate). I think most of us would agree with his statement
As I posted on Friday, I decided it was time to close the chapter on my career at Thoracle (by the way, the positive wishes in response from all of you has been quite gratifying). But it wasn’t without knowing what the next chapter was going to bring. It’s going to be a busy July

Matt Flynn brought to my attention an article in which Dale Olds talks about the need for hosters (companies that provide the platform on which you deploy your Cloud/SaaS applications) to provide identity services (and as Matt points out, security services in general) as part
…xhausting! OK! So being at a conference (Cloud Computing Expo in NYC, where Oracle is making big waves with announcements in the PaaS space) where I had no wi-fi or power meant that I was trying to follow the big xAuth announcement via Twitter on my iPhone over 3G – note exactly the easiest thing.
On Monday, I presented at Oracle OpenWorld on the topic of “Identity Management and the Cloud: Stormy Days Ahead?“. The title proved to be a little too prescient, because the weather in San Francisco was pretty nasty. And as you can imagine, the number of jokes made about this became all to predictable. Unfortunate coincidences
As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I’ll be speaking at Oracle OpenWorld on the topic “Identity Management and the Cloud: Stormy Days Ahead?“.This year, I got a slot that is at a far more reasonable hour. In fact, it is after the morning keynotes on Monday, and before the general sessions
My webinar with KuppingerCole on the topic “Identity Services and the Cloud: What Every Enterprise Should Know” went pretty well yesterday. KuppingerCole has made the recording available for viewing, which you can download here (you have to register for a free account; trust me, its worth it). Or you can just check out the deck
