Principles, axioms and laws - oh my!

Fellow Network World columnist and Burton Group senior analyst Jim Kobielus has now blogged in on the laws of identity. While complimenting Cameron for bringing up the subject, Jim does tear down the laws, replacing them with his own "four principles of identity." But Kobielus Principles have much more in common with Scott Lemon's Axioms of Identity than with Cameron's Laws.

Kim Cameron has outlined the behavior that Identity management services and applications should follow while Lemon and Kobielus are more concerned with the philosophical and societal definition of Identity itself. The difference isn't quite "apples and oranges", but it is apples and apple pie.
