Change Starts With Just A Conversation

This was my panel, so my opinion my be biased ;)

As a Core Conversation, this was not a typical panel of presentation. This was aimed to be in the format of a discussion surrounding the topic. We had a fun room of folks from all walks of life including Technology, Security, and Law. We started with an introduction to the topic and services that aim to address the issue. Afterwards an intense and passionate brainstorm of ways to circumvent the legal, privacy, and technological complications of address what happens to digital assets in the cloud after death.

Solutions for managing access to your digital identity included revised terms and TOS and EULAs addressing this issue, especially if there is monetary value involved. Participants were also  in support of OpenID standards for identity verification issues specifically for the court of law.

While nothing was resolved in one hour, a lot of great ideas were discussed, challenged, and molded. The issue is something we all felt should be addressed and now was the time to do it. I was happy that SxSW accepted and highlighted this topic.

What did you think of this review?

Thanks for sharing this. I was sad that I missed it, but I'm glad you shared your "speaker notes" here. It is nice to hear how the speaker thinks it went.
