Craig Burton mis-speaks

Craig Burton makes what's becoming an all too common error in talking about Kim Cameron's Laws of Identity when he confuses Microsoft's Passport with the never implemented technology code-named Hailstorm, but officially known as ".Net/MyServices". It was Hailstorm that caused Sun Microsystems to rush off and hastily assemble the meeting which gave birth to the Liberty Alliance. To the best of my knowledge, in fact, Passport wasn't even a part of Hailstorm except by analogy. But all the bad publicity Hailstorm got also succeeded in drawing down the market for Passport. Still, they were separate technologies.
