'Identity skills shortage' will be problematic for Verify ID. (So not the TECH FAILS, then?)

Re: What's identity?

Agreed: A name is just an attribute of a persona that is tied to an entity (in this case a person).

The identity of that entity is unique, unchanging (I am always me) and should be 100% anonymous and under my sole control.

Unfortunately once governments get involved (not just the UK) they want to build a silo of "identities" that is under their control - a solution that will only fail.

See the work on the Jericho Forum and their "Identity Commandments" or more latterly the work of the Global Identity Foundation.
