But sometimes it becomes helpful to translate source code to standard language. Be it an RFC, a full blown ISO standard or anything inbetween. It's helpful because it opens new possibilities AND forces you to stick to your stable API/ABI.

Here's another insight I had a long time ago. Every piece of code is a standard. Not explicit, but implicit. It is hiding in stable APIs and long term sustainability of any Open Source project. Most of the time it can stay in that implicit state.

The technical fundament, the core standard, has to be called TCP/ID. It's for people what TCP/IP is for machines. An that allows for many, many applications while guaranteeing verifiable interoperabilty. And it sounds cool :) it is :) 3/3

And being in , I also know about the power of brands and names. So a long time ago, while brainstorming, we decided that we are building something that connects people. In secure ways. And the name became obvious. 2/n

So from now on I will use the hashtag while I explore the wonderful world of Tags and their possible potential for my decentralised identity project. I've decided years ago that we first need for such a beast. 1/n

Today 23717 new keys were distributed to the German app. Total checked keys today is 444590. # of keys is NOT number of infected people sharing their diagnosis with the app. More details and insights at micb25.github.io/dka/index_en.

And one thing is already promised. At the core there is no need for . I am sure there will be solutions built on top of the core that will use blockchain, but the core of the system itself MUST NOT use blockchain. It's non-negotiable.

So many of the solutions that are being discussed in the self-sovereign identity scene are very complex. It takes a lot of knowledge to truly understand it. That's a risk IMHO. If the people don't "get" it after 5 minutes, they won't really accept it.

At the core it must be simple. That's why I'm trying to do the first prototype more or less completely on my own. And when it works, I want to be able to explain it in max 5 minutes. Only if I get that far, it starts to make sense.

So this is going to be Version 0.0.1-alpha of decentralised identity :)

I had a kind of epiphany on how to get the various concepts that we've been working on to come together as a unified approach. But I need to build it first. I'm pragmatic. Make it work first. Make it better afterwards.

(dirt cheap meaning I just spent around 800€ on hardware like NFC cards/tags, readers, arduinos and a giant ID card printer with holographic lamination ;)

You know what? I am going to use the next weeks, possibly months in lockdown to build stuff around my identity plans. Dirt cheap secure solutions. Open Source and as open hardware as possible. Stay tuned :)

Hallo @jensspahn@twitter.com @Markus_Soeder@twitter.com - Italien hat jetzt DOPPELT so viele Impfungen geschafft wie Deutschland. Wird es langsam mal Zeit für ein echten Ruck? Das kann doch wohl alles nicht mehr wahr sein. 1000 Tote am Tag und ihr sitzt weiterhin auf die Impfdosen im Kühlregal?
