I've been attending the MyData 2017 conference (and involved in organising the academic part). This session today was pretty interesting: "Building Blocks of the Decentralised World" https://mydata2017.org/session/building-blocks-decentralised-world/. Tomorrow I will attend this one "Self Sovereign Identity" https://mydata2017.org/session/self-sovereign-identity/.
@sazius Ah nice! The DID work ties in directly with the stuff I wrote about in https://gitlab.com/dustyweb/talks/blob/master/activitypub/rwot/even_more_distributed_activitypub.org
Hope to hear what you think of that talk :)
@cwebber There were actually two talks on DIDs. Both great, but not that much new stuff for me. Main thing to solve is the ledger. The Evernym people were promoting Sovrin/Indy which has a permissioned public ledger. The research project I'm going to be in is also quite focused on using Sovrin.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, although I don't know what you mean by malicious point :-)
@email@example.com I choose to take that as a compliment :-)
