> Feeling like you have too many logins and too many passwords? The
> “social sign-in” model, where you log in to one site by reusing a
> login you already have at another, points a way out of the mess. But
> then there’s the part where you end up sharing large volumes of data
> about yourself… Eve Maler will explore how websites can use this
> model’s powers for good instead of evil, and discuss the new web
> standards, such as OAuth and User-Managed Access, that start bringing
> identity power to the people. Eve is an industry analyst at Forrester
> Research, a technical strategist, and an innovator around digital
> identity, security, and privacy, with particular interests in creating
> successful wide-scale ecosystems and fostering individual empowerment.
> Some of her nicknames and roles are XMLgrrl, Carbgrrl, the SAML Lady,
> chief UMAnitarian, barbershop chorusgrrl, and Mud Junket’s den

> interesting findings in narwhal science. These include: (a) Do
> narwhals exist? (b) Do their tusks have magic powers? (c) Can
