IDM in pop culture

Some days I am amazed at how deeply the identity management concepts have penetrated into popular culture:

"Mr Big Stuff, who do you think you are?" clearly relates to an authentication issue or authorization issue.

"Won't get fooled again" by the WHO is clearly making a reference to a Certificate Revocation List, now that I have revoked your certificate you won't be authenticated again.

One area where pop culture is still shockingly uninformed still need help is in asset protection. I guess the authors of many forlorn love songs wish they could have used Rights Management Service and issued a use license that did not contain the permission to "Steal my heart" and "Break my heart."

Tech Ed -- Lotsa Buzz ILM 2 and CLM

On Tuesday Bob Muglia made a big announcement -- ILM 2 Beta 3 has been released. While the beta install is only 64 bit on Microsoft Connect you can download the 32-bit Virtual PC. At the ILM 2 booth at Tech Ed the Microsoft ILM Product Group and I were handing them out like crazy.

Thanks to Nima for inviting me to participate at the booth.

Best session I went was by Candy Stark from MS IT. She presented on the smart card deployment at MSFT using CLM.
