Two wishes granted – an API for XACML, and OpenID from Google Apps. Wish three – strong(er) authentication for Google Apps to make SaaS more secure.

I’ve spent a lot of time this year talking about persona, which makes it a little ridiculous that I find myself writing now about its possible demise. We’ve barely got started. The problem is ‘the end on online anonymity‘, where Sarah Perez argues that the Lori Drew case will cause us to lose the freedom […]
