Brian hits a lot of the great points about claimID, especially how easy it is to use the service. I think that’s key: Digital Identity is such a complicated thing. At ClaimID we’re starting with the simplest and most fundamental elements of our digital identity: the links that are about us online, and building from there.
ClaimID will evolve, features will be added, but we’ll always keep the service easy to use, and we’ll always take a standards-based approach. We want to make claimID a hub for your online identity. For example, our data feeds are CC-licensed, and we include a hCard (a standards-based way for sharing your identity information) with each profile. We’re just getting started, but we think we’re headed in the right direction.
