Here are a few of the questions raised by the Mobile Identity topic, which we can talk about at the workshop:
How can we move user-centric identity forward in the Mobile space?
How can we do Vendor Relationship Management (VRM) that meshes with sellers' Customer Relationship Management?
How can we both protect and employ our anonymity and privacy?
Where should our identity data live, and be put to selective use, at our personal discretion?
Is there a business opportunity here for identity brokers, for example?
What kinds of new and established businesses will step up to facilitate and take advantage of individual identity-based market activities?
What new and improved roles will be played by carriers and equipment makers? How about new independent mobile players?
What are the differences between user-centric identity in laptops and less computerlike mobile devices? What will work only in one form and not in another?
How will Mobile Identity play in developing countries where mobile phones are far more common than PCs, and SMS is used for secure transactions?
What are some of the specialized applications-in health care, for example?
How do commercial activities and public policy intersect?
How do we mobilize OpenID, Cardspace, Sxip, i-Names, microformats and other user-centric technologies and standards, most of which were developed first for computers? How do we get them to work in real-time — and with each other?
How do we embrace and extend the open ends of the equipment makers and carriers?
How do we work with (and mash up) solutions for (and with) large web service providers such as Google, Yahoo, Amazon and Microsoft?
