Identity 2.0

I don't think there is such a thing as "Identity 2.0" -- at least not  
in the sense that everybody in this industry uses the term, or that  
there is any kind of agreement on its meaning.

It's great that Dick Hardt responded to your question, because I  
believe he is the originator of the phrase, but he might have wanted  
to qualify his response with "this is what I think it means, or what  
I meant when I created the term".

The much more broadly used, and far less vendor-specific terms include:
  - user-controlled, or user-centric identity
  - decentralized identity
  - grassroots identity
  - "independent" identity
