MICROSOFT GOES OPEN SOURCE WITH AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR TRUST

In reviewing my last several posts, I was beginning to wonder whether I’m cynical by nature or simply running low on happy pills. But then I found something really positive to write about: Microsoft announced at RSA that it would open source its U-Prove technology. This is really good news.

I hope the development community takes notice and begins contemplating the power of these tools for improving trust relationships online. I discussed some of its potential as part of my post on the “The Law of Relational Projection”  (scroll to the bottom of the post to find the specific reference).

So here’s a shout out to Kim Cameron, Stefan Brands, and the others who made this happen: Congrats!!
