AACRAO Identity and Access Management 2007

Karen Hanson (Assistant Registrar) and I ran a half-day workshop at the AACRAO Technology Conference on Identity and Access Management (IAM) and the Registrar’s role in IAM.   We had a great time even though the session was Sunday at 8AM.   The slides are here:  AACRAO 2007 IDM Slides

We had a mix of people from central IT to Registrars in the audience.  We had schools that had fairly mature IAM systems to some who were just starting.  It was a fun time and there was good conversations.

Karen and I also had fun running around Minneapolis.  We had great food at Zelo and Masa and listened to the Spaghetti Western String Company.   We also saw the Picasso exhibit at the Walker Art Museum.

One of the better conferences trips that I’ve had in a while.

U-Minn presentations: SOA, Folksonomy and IT Architecture

On Monday (April 3, 2006), I was at University of Minnesota presenting on four topics. Below are links to the slides as PDFs:

  1. UW-Madison’s SOA Migration Strategy – what is it and how do we get one
  2. Folksonomy and Web 2.0
  3. IT Architecture – What is it and why 3 isn’t enough
  4. Identity Management Nouns and Verbs

Note that the Folksonomy slides are from an Internet2 version of the talk and are more inclusive than the slides I used at U-Minn. Actually, I meant to grab these slides not the ones that I used. There are a list of links of the URLs that I used in the Folksonomy demo here:
