She was elected to the inaugural NSTIC management council and has since December lead a sub-committee collecting and synthesizing  ecosystem images.  In this coming election she is running to be the delegate for representing small businesses and entrepreneurs.   She is qualified to represent this category well for two reasons.

The small business perspective of dealing with the hodgepodge of Identity Management solutions avaliable to organizations with under 10 employees are very real to her. It is a  nightmare managing different websites and cloud based services (access control for employees and members and customers).  The visions that NSTIC articulates could really make a difference to millions of small local businesses.

She has founded many conferences and organization and currently runs the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium trade association that connects entrepreneurial efforts at the leading edge of the emerging identity ecosystem – developing personal clouds.

She’s been working for almost 10 years as an end-user advocate in the development of technical standards for identity online.  She got her start on with the Planetwork community in 2002. In 2003 they published The Augmented Social Network: Building Identity and Trust into the Next Generation Internet and this paper has served as an inspiration for her work.

She wrote a 60 page response to the NSTIC Governance Notice of Inquiry about how the identity ecosystem governance should work including citizens’ (that includes small business owners) input and deliberation.

She founded the Internet Identity Workshop about user-centric identity in 2005 with Doc Searls and Phil Windley and it happens every 6 months – Spring 2013 is number 16.

She has many community roles and has been working with startups and entrepreneurs in a consortium to build a Personal Data Ecosystem.
