  • As a management instructor I enjoy viewing the work of others. This is one of the greatest slideshow on planning I've viewed.

  • Chris, thanks for the pointer. I was aware of Diso and took inspiration from your recent talk at Twiist but I haven't yet looked in as much detail at Diso as I should. It's useful to think about how research activities map onto this and where they might not. I've argued a lot that in most cases generic services serve perfectly well for researchers and are much better resourced so can be expected to provide better (if not specifically designed) user experiences. I have been feeling that identity might be different but probably only at the level of specific services built over a generic framework. It would be interesting to explore the edge cases to see how well Diso does map on to our use cases and possibly also how that might provide a different perspective on the approaches that are being taken in the online word more generally.

  • Interesting stuff... curious if you've checked out what I'm doing with the Diso Project (http://diso-project.org)? I'm essentially trying to cobble together a solution to the problem you're describing using open technologies.... built on top of OpenID.

Oh you're that Cameron Neylon

  1. 1. Oh, you’re that Cameron Neylon Why effective identity management is critical to the development of open research
  2. 2. Oh, you’re that Cameron Neylon Why effective identity management is critical to the development of open research future
  3. 3. Who am I?

  5. 5. I am all these different people to different people at different times
  6. 6. http://www.flickr.com/photos/paolomazzoleni/436307747 CC-BY
  7. 7. It matters to me... http://www.flickr.com/photos/bdunnette/167010858 CC-BY-SA

  9. 9. ...it matters to him...
  10. 10. ...there are things you don’t want to be associated with...
  11. 11. ...what if you’re this guy (or one of his friends) and want to work in vaccine research...?
  12. 12. ...funders want more information on outputs
  13. 13. More measurement http://www.flickr.com/photos/redjar/136165399 CC-BY-SA
  14. 14. Greater diversity of outputs
  15. 15. ...serious consequences http://www.flickr.com/photos/erix/27946743 CC-BY
  16. 16. ...and we’re spending £12B of the taxpayer’s money http://www.flickr.com/photos/joeshlabotnik/2143212474 CC-BY
  17. 17. ...it might be nice to get this right
  18. 18. ...it might be nice to get this right(ish)
  19. 19. ...but that’s all a bit negative http://www.flickr.com/photos/bensonkua/3165739586 CC-BY-SA
  20. 20. what about a positive view? http://www.flickr.com/photos/29412527@N04/3393371408 CC-BY
  21. 21. ...if I want to see more open data http://www.flickr.com/photos/swanksalot/2704017177 CC-BY-SA
  22. 22. ...a more diverse research community http://www.flickr.com/photos/untitlism/22800371 CC-BY
  23. 23. ...if I want people to agree to referee requests...
  24. 24. ...then they need to be recognised and rewarded http://www.flickr.com/photos/wmjas/68005012 CC-BY-SA
  25. 25. Rewards can be big... http://www.flickr.com/photos/natematias/310642831 CC-BY-SA
  26. 26. ...or small...
  27. 27. ...but need to be recognised
  28. 28. ...trusted http://www.flickr.com/photos/joi/2941559903 CC-BY
  29. 29. ...and unambiguously linked to one person http://www.flickr.com/photos/frielp/2661943 CC-BY
  30. 30. In today’s world with its diverse outputs and metrics any assessment that cannot be independently and automatically replicated is not credible.
  31. 31. For usability, transparency, and reliability, we need a clear researcher id http://www.flickr.com/photos/_dietrich/2402860858 CC-BY
  32. 32. So what should it look like? http://www.flickr.com/photos/37868257@N05/3546402630 CC-BY
  33. 33. A token, not an authentication mechanism
  34. 34. For researchers, by researchers
  35. 35. The property of the individual, not controlled by a commercial group
  36. 36. ...or their institution
  37. 37. Any centralised authority must represent all the stakeholders not just entrenched interests.
  38. 38. Future proof, portable, and native to the open data web.
  39. 39. ...whose data do you trust? http://is.gd/thVr
  40. 40. We
trust
people... ...not
objects
  41. 41. A semantic social web of objects (and data, and process and...)
  42. 42. (Some
of)
the
 people
I
trust... ...in
different
ways
 and
for
different
 things
  43. 43. No single metric will work for every person or purpose...
  44. 44. ...but with robust identity tokens we can build metrics for the purpose at hand
  45. 45. We can build a reward structure that supports a more diverse and open research community.
  46. 46. But more importantly
  47. 47. We can build and manage the trust networks that will let us navigate an open web of data.
