Interesting identity demos?

         I recently came across YADIS/OpenID/LID, and I am working to
incorporate my work into the framework that you all have constructed.
         I've released software, available at, to 
create economic instruments from arbitrary information.  I've also 
released a (minimally documented) modification to the Subversion svn 
client to create economic instruments from code checked into a Subversion 
repository.  My intention is that information currency based on a person's 
creative work will enable identity to be established by the ideas that a 
person has developed and is associated with.
 	I'm sending this email to the list to volunteer to be part of the 
speed geeking with an information currency / PKI demonstration.
 	Thanks for all your work!
