  • "The developers behind the OAuth protocol have developed a new variant called OAuth WRAP that is simpler and easier to implement. It's a stop-gap solution that will enable broader OAuth adoption while OAuth 2.0, the next generation of the specification, is devised by a working group that is collaborating through the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)."

    Quick intro to Oauth + differences with Oauth WRAP (OAuth Web Resource Authorization Protocol):
    – simplified variant
    – communication takes place of SSL (mandatory!)
    – tokens in OAuth WRAP are short lived and can represent claims issued by an authorization server

  • "Er bestaat onder consumenten en bedrijfsleven een behoefte aan een hoogwaardige B2C identity oplossing met een laag trustniveau. OpenID.nl+ is een initiatief van ECP-EPN waarin potentiële Identity Providers (IdP’s) en Relying Parties (RP’s) samenwerken om dit in Nederland van de grond te krijgen"
    Grote IdP's en RP's gaan in Nederland samenwerken om "kwaliteitsgaranties" af te spreken over de data die via Attribute Exchange wordt uitgewisseld:
    "- gegevens die de consument vanaf een andere website kan importeren vaak op echtheid gecheckt en krijgt de website dus bijvoorbeeld het correcte mobiele nummer of juiste adresgegevens binnen
    – Ook voor de bedrijven die meedoen aan OpenID+ is vertrouwen belangrijk: een webwinkel die meedoet aan het OpenID+ netwerk zal geen rare dingen doen met de gegevens die het krijgt van de bijvoorbeeld hyves, anders volgen er sancties. Daarom is de Hyves dan ook bereid de webwinkel hoogwaardige informatie te leveren."

  • Art project in Berlin: @tweetleak prints tweets from people as stickers to show how public your tweets are:
    "Tweetleak, a monolithic anthracithe-colored pole, which is placed in a public place, aggregates tweets from nearby and "materializes" them. The collected fragments from people's lives on the web leave the digital public space on adhesive paper strips. being taken away by other individuals, they are distributed in physical space, eventually being placed in another context in another environment.

    After a tweet has been printed out the author is notified. There is also a notification via twitter when the printed tweet has been taken away. The loss of control over one's data is illustrated: after a short period of time, the user won't be able to track his tweet. "

  • Entrepreneurial/marketing lessons for engineers/people with a European mindset. By Filip Tack, Nomadesk:
    – Quality is secondary (time-to-market, early feedback and marketing are more important)
    – Innovating is not banking, don’t hedge your bets (if you try to please everyone, you won't please anyone)
    – Remain cautiously opportunistic (don't get entrenched in your original product vision)
