Two Worlds

World of Ends and Means
Quote: “I became keenly aware that two evolving worlds understand each other poorly…One world is typified by the World of Ends, in which Doc Searls and David Wienberger espoused a very customer-centric view of the Net…there’s also another world-let’s call it the World of Means. In that world, we have large enterprises and governments. While they don’t always use it well, large companies and governments have the means with which to accomplish things, for better or worse.”
Comment: Explores digital identity from two extreme perspectives…and comes to the conclusion that: enterprise “systems must accept the customer-centric forms of identity that will ultimately emerge.”
