Digital Identity. Are we there yet?

This post relates to my Microsoft Reactor Sydney presentation from July 6 2021 – Digital Identity. Are we there yet?

Your Digital Identity is the foundation of who you are in our modern online world. In this session we take a quick trip down memory lane reminiscing on how our online digital identities have evolved and our early attempts at managing and securing them. I then look at the next wave of identity with decentralized digital identifiers, verifiable credentials and the promise of you being the master of your own identity.
