It’s day one of Digital ID World 2007. This is my third or fourth trip to DIDW. This ever-growing event always impresses with the level and quality of conversation. During the keynotes this morning, I got a glimpse of something small and to me something quite telling. I saw Phil Becker and Eric Norlin, the brains and brawn (I’ll let you figure out which one is which), sitting on the floor off to the side of the packed meeting room. These guys have always put the emphasis on hearing real world deployment stories and in doing so have always elevated their audiences to active participants. To see the heads of the conference sitting on the floor to allow more attendees to have a place to sit is, to me at least, a sign of their character – totally legit.
