DWeb SF — April Meetup

When you use today’s Web platforms, ever wonder why the platforms get to control how you log-on, your identity, your data and your media? Is there a way that identity and data could be “self-sovereign” (controlled by the individual not the corporations)? That’s the subject at the next DWeb SF Meet Up, where you can learn about three new approaches to taking back control of your identity and your data.

30 April - 02 May
Mountain View,
Internet Identity Workshop

The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. This year Jolocom will be joining the Demo Hour and Sandbox Breakfast.

Every IIW moves topics, code and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and it’s likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

coding stuttgart: {meetup: {index: 1 } }

At the first coding stuttgart meetup, the term “Self-Sovereign Identity” was mentioned, and someone stood up and said, “that sounds interesting”! At the next meetup in May, Kai will take the opportunity and clear the clouds on how you gain back control over your identity using blockchain technology (and how to integrate it into your applications). There will be talks, there will be conversation and there will be code for sure. And thanks to our host Turbine Kreuzberg there will be amenities to keep you alive during the evening. Doors at 18:30.

DWeb.Design Typonight

Dribbble Berlin meetup → … Typonight?
Is it the promised second event out of series for UI designers we launched in February?
Yes, this time we under the new community name, digging deeper to the UI and typography topic, and still having the same mission: to encourage designers to bring bolder ideas into presentation rooms, create more variety in UI design and to secure the new digital industries (like blockchain) from the visual sameness.

Identity Week 2019

Knowledge Theatre 1 – Day 2: Self Sovereign Identity: Learnings from the Belgian Blockchain on the Move project

IDENTITY WEEK comprises three world-class events – Digital:ID, Planet Biometrics and SDW – all focused on the concept of identity. The aim is to help create a more secure world, where trusted identity solutions enable governments and commercial organisations to provide citizens, employees, customers and consumers with a multitude of services, entitlements and opportunities to transact in a seamless, yet secure manner.

On Day 2 (12.06) Kai will present our work with the Blockchain on the Move project along with Daniel Du Seuil, Program Manager And Architect Blockchain at Informatie Vlaanderen of the Flemish Government. This session will explore the new paradigm of self-sovereign identity and share the learnings of the Belgian Blockchain on the Move project where the different governments did the first tests with self sovereign identity and blockchain. We will also highlight the next steps including a public-private collaboration and alignment with the European/Global initiatives.

Digitaler Salon: E-dentifiziert?

Note: This is a German-language event. Kai will be speaking.

Ein Leben ohne Demokratie kann sich kaum jemand in Europa vorstellen und doch steht sie auf wackeligen Beinen. Fridays for future, save the internet und gelbe Westen: Viele BürgerInnen tragen ihren Unmut über politische Entscheidungen auf der einen und Forderungen für mehr Mitspracherecht auf der anderen Seite ins Netz und auf die Straße. Ein wichtiger Hoffnungsträger bleibt weiterhin ein inklusives, ermächtigendes Netz. Auch Staatsbürgerschaften könnten bald digitalisiert und innoviert werden. Ermöglicht uns das neue Formen der Partizipation und stärkt so die europäische Demokratie? Mit dieser großen Frage möchte der Digitale Salon kurz vor der Europawahl diskutieren, welche Chancen sich durch e-Identity und Onlineabstimmung ergeben.
