  • Bernd, thanks for the comment and sharing your thoughts. Like said, we need sustainable, open and functional alternatives (to be able to fully be ourselves through our multilinear existence)

  • Thank you for sharing these slides. Make a lot of sense after hearing you talk about the concepts.

    During the past decade and half, I have registered with a few dozen vendors, shared some of my data, recorded a few dozens of passwords, and done thousands of dollars worth of business with them, banking not included. I expect this business to grow, from me, from my family, and from others. I start disliking the juggling of all the different log-ins, different interfaces, fractured identities. It becomes work that detracts from getting the business done, or from on-line shopping, all the while physical shopping had already become time-consuming and boring.

    Getting fed up with all this, I joined the fray of those who propose a simpler way to retain control of my personal data. http://bit.ly/aUVsw2
