Phil Windley claims that a technology stack consisting of self-sovereign identity (SSI) and related technologies has all the qualities of generativity.
Hello and thank you for your interest, especially if you have expertise in psychology, sociology, cultural studies, political science, and / or ecology.
That's not to neglect an equally warm welcome to those immersed in information technology, but just recognizes that information technologists are by far the dominant discipline working in the field of 'digital identity' at the turn of 2021, and if anything the generative identity initiative exists to encourage multi-disiplinary participation.
Here are the major milestones to date for your quick orientation:
- We published this site on 20th October 2020 with an About section and a corresponding critique of self-sovereign identity
- We published a draft Group charter and corresponding blog post 4th January 2021.
