Mission statements: • Identity Commons: Support, facilitate, and promote the creation of an open identity layer for the Internet, one that maximizes control, convenience, and privacy for the individual while encouraging the development of healthy, interoperable communities. • Information Card Foundation: Promote, protect, and enable the development of an open, trusted, interoperable, royalty-free identity layer for the Internet that maximizes control over personal information by individuals • OpenID Foundation: To foster and promote the development of, public access to, and adoption of OpenID as a framework for user-centric identity on the Internet; and To acquire, create, hold, and manage intellectual property related to OpenID and provide equal access to such intellectual property to the OpenID community and public at no charge. • Kantara Intiative: Foster identity community harmonization, interoperability, innovation, and broad adoption through the development of open identity specifications, operational frameworks, education programs, deployment and usage best practices for privacy- respecting, secure access to online services • Open Identity Exchange: Collecting aggregating, and distributing information regarding the identity-related services industry to businesses and other stakeholders in that industry in order to improve conditions in that industry by fostering innovation, market transparency, and identity-related product and service interoperability; Providing a neutral, open market registration system for participants in the identity-related services industry; • Data Portability Project: Data portability enables a borderless experience, where people can move easily between network services, reusing data they provide while controlling their privacy and respecting the privacy of others. Our Mission is to help people to use and protect the data they create on networked services, and to advocate for compliance with the values of DataPortability.

  • 34. SHARED UNDERSTANDING using shared language A Bill of Rights for Users of the Social Web September 4, 2007 Authored by Joseph Smarr, Marc Canter, Robert Scoble, and Michael Arrington Preamble: There are already many who support the ideas laid out in this Bill of Rights, but we are actively seeking to grow the roster of those publicly backing the principles and approaches it outlines. That said, this Bill of Rights is not a document “carved in stone” (or written on paper). It is a blog post, and it is intended to spur conversation and debate, which will naturally lead to tweaks of the language. So, let’s get the dialogue going and get as many of the major stakeholders on board as we can! A Bill of Rights for Users of the Social Web We publicly assert that all users of the social web are entitled to certain fundamental rights, specifically: • Ownership of their own personal information, including: ◦ their own profile data ◦ the list of people they are connected to ◦ the activity stream of content they create; • Control of whether and how such personal information is shared with others; and • Freedom to grant persistent access to their personal information to trusted external sites. Sites supporting these rights shall: • Allow their users to syndicate their own profile data, their friends list, and the data that’s shared with them via the service, using a persistent URL or API token and open data formats; • Allow their users to syndicate their own stream of activity outside the site; • Allow their users to link from their profile pages to external identifiers in a public way; and • Allow their users to discover who else they know is also on their site, using the same external identifiers made available for lookup within the service.
