This is an excellently written and well thought out solution to the problem of personal sovereignty in the digital age! Thank you for sharing it Anthony. Question: It is proper to allow Authorities can revoke attestations, shouldn’t individuals have the ability to revoke access to and use of provided data? For example: An individual contracts with another entity for a transactional service that may require access to some sensitive information but only for and during the provision of that service. Should there be mechanisms to (a) allow access to that information in a time-bound manner, (b) revoke access to that information, and (c) enforce a and b? It seems that sovereign digital identity should treat identity information as personal property and allow management of it accordingly. Thoughts?
The assumption that users will log in by entering a user name and password that they have registered in your own application is no longer valid. The web has become more social. Users are interacting with each other in real time through social channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and other social web sites. Developers want users to be able to log in with their social identities so that they can have a rich experience on their web sites. A modern membership system must enable redirection-based log-ins to authentication providers such as Facebook, Twitter, and others.
Butler, as we noted, did not make direct reference to the mass media, but it seems obvious that if there is to be a major proliferation of images in the public eye, then the media must play a central role. To date, there have only been a relatively small amount of media representations fitting the Butler bill. Some advertising - such as the sexually charged but androgynous imagery promoting the CK One fragrance 'for a man or a woman' - had reminded viewers of the similarity of genders, hinting that it wouldn't matter which of the attractive male or female models you chose to desire. Other ads (such as ones for Impulse deoderant and Kronenbourg lager) playfully teased heterosexual desires only to reveal that the lust object was more interested in their own sex, pointing audiences to the unpredictability of sexualities. In this book we have discussed further cases of films, TV shows and magazines which have also celebrated non-traditional visions of gender and sexuality. Nevertheless, there remains a great deal of scope for the mass media to be much more challenging in these areas.
