July was a big month for me I traveled to Identity North (Toronto), RightsCon (Tunis), ID4Africa (Johannesburg) and Identiverse (Washington DC). I have yet to write all this up – I’ll be sure to notify you when I do. I’m also curious what your questions are about these events.

Coming up in the Fall:

I will be attending ID2020’s Summit on September 20th in NYC.

I will be speaking at m on Sept 23 in London at SIBOS the conference SWIFT (The co-op in the middle of the world banking system) puts on.
