  5. 5. Browser Identity<br />Identity will be one of the defining themes in the next five years of the Web. Nearly every site has a concept of a user account, registration, and identity. <br />We are seeing market-moving effects of the identity/log in problem. Facebook Connect and Google’s Friend Connect both let you use your pre-existing identity and social graph to super-power other websites. The problem?<br />Your identity is too important to be owned by any one company.Your friends are too important to be owned by any one company.<br />A Solution<br />The browser is your personal and trusted agent to the web. It’s the only actor on the Internet stage which both knows everything you do on the web, and never has to let that data leave the privacy of your desktop. Your browser knows you (or, at least, should).<br />http://www.azarask.in/blog/post/identity-in-the-browser-firefox/<br />
  6. 6. The Content Pyramid<br />Being at the top of the content pyramid is the best place of all. You’re the domain expert. People can’t talk about the subject without touching on your work. But, the aggregators might be where the traffic and exposure really is to push down into the volume sectors.You need to look for a longer term strategy. You need to have opinions and develop a writing style that engages an audience. You need to spread the word so far and wide that people will learn about ideas from you, even if it all proves is that you subscribe to the blog of someone much smarter. <br />From that comes traffic… and links from lower down the chain… and ultimately authority: the holy grail.<br />http://www.davidnaylor.co.uk/the-content-pyramid.html<br />
