Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

Rather than a crowd assembling at the start and sitting through a presentation and then doing a Q & A or having a spirited discussion, this time we had the fortuitous result (perhaps of being in far away Room A, with its projector) of attendees trickling in and out. This enabled us to have one-on-one or two-on-one sessions with members or prospective members, and to focus on their questions or insights, and to delve deeply into their areas of interest. We showed the most current PDEC slide deck to all who came by, and also at other times during the conference. Key points and a graphic from the deck:

PDEC Principles

Empower individuals [aka principals] to control their personal information on their terms

Empower organizations [aka providers, custodians, relying parties] to enter into an exchange of personal information on an individual's terms

Support open personal information frameworks, standards and best practices

Support new business model evolution


An additional note: PDEC was proud to announce at this IIW that we have signed alliance agreement with Kantara and OIX (and we do mean at this IIW23, where the signings took place), as we are separate organizations with separate agendae but many Venn diagram-like concerns in common. Our overall goals for personal data and identity and standards and practices are in alignment. Our statement(s) of alliance puts that at the forefront and sends the message to our members and to our communities, and to the enterprise, that we are working together to bring about positive change and opportunity via standards and practices applicable to commerce and the personal data ecosystem at large.
