Thoughts on the Information Card Foundation
Hmmm. Front my seat, do you know how many organizations with membership fees my organization could possibly join under the guise of influence? Imagine a slick enterprise architect going in front of his boss, asking for funding of $50K to join the information card foundation on a day where the boss is keenly paying attention. How would you answer the following?
- McGovern, we already belong to Project Liberty. Why aren't they working on this?
- McGovern, if you look past the consumerish conversation, isn't B2B identity just as important?
- McGovern, if you agree that B2B identity from a business perspective is just as important, shouldn't the conversation occur within a vertical context as well?
- McGovern, you belong to OWASP? How come OWASP is ignorant to this problem space? More importantly, how come Information Card Foundation couldn't be more like OWASP
- If Information Cards are so freakin hot, then why is Microsoft talking to us about everything else but this?
- How come there are only vendors participating and none from other large enterprises?
I wonder what Kim Cameron, Drummond Reed, Pamela Dingle or others would say if he were in my shoes...
