MashPit OpenID: Austin

Tom Brown of Stuffopolis has organized an OpenID Mashpit Wednesday, January 17th, 2007 - 4pm at Cafe Caffeine.

OpenID is an emerging standard for doing identity on the Internet; single sign-on, one username, one password for the sites you visit. Putting this together with a Mash Pit we now have an event that people can come to and hack on OpenID and figure out how to make it work for their sites or applications.

We'll do a very brief introduction on OpenID and then break out into small groups to help people actually dig into the "doing" of OpenID enabling their site. The goal? More hacking, less talking.

The Digital Convergence Initiative of the Texas Technology Corridor –

An opportunity to be a leader in establishing Central Texas as the world center of innovation for Digital Convergence.

As more intelligent, smaller digital machines are developed, as digital circuits evolve, and as digital communications becomes ever-more pervasive, they will continue to converge with computers, televisions, security systems, electric appliances, and many other devices, to provide new and useful functions for both the home and work environments.

This is Digital Convergence, and is the tip of the iceberg - the symbiotic coalescence of technologies, markets, and functions forming the foundation for present and future innovation and growth.
