I would like to congratulate all the Liberty, Concordia, ICF, XDI, and other standards folks for launching the Kantara Initiative. I have no doubt that there will be a lot of interesting work done under this umbrella.
That’s to not say there aren’t nay-sayers. There always are. My advice to those involved in KI is to ignore the nay-sayers and go solve problems. And have fun doing it.
As to whether the audience of technology adopters will find value in the results, I can’t venture a guess.
Oddly enough the first time I read about it I thought it was the “Katana Initiative”. Damn dyslexia.
