It's time to do a little housekeeping over at Planet Identity. First, the easy stuff... The feeds for Dmitry Shechtman (feed) and Trusted Network Technologies (feed) have been returning 404 since I-don't-know-when, so I've deleted them from the subscription list. If you know the current whereabouts of Dmitry's or TNT's blogs, then please leave a comment, or email me (if you're reading this in your RSS reader, then just click through to Planet Identity or Superpatterns - my email address is in the sidebar on both.)
Now, the hard stuff. Shelley Powers (feed) and Doc Searls (feed) both write entertaining, lucid, insightful prose, but most of it is not about identity. I've resisted removing folks from the subscription list for some time, but I had some really good feedback at the recent IIW on the usefulness of Planet Identity and how it would benefit from more focus. So, if you want to carry on reading Shelley and Doc, do what I just did - subscribe to them directly - those feed URLs again - Shelley, Doc.
Much as I enjoy playing (more or less) benevolent dictator (mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!), Planet Identity is there for you, the readers. If you have an opinion, either way, on any of these changes, then please leave me a comment. If you'd rather express your opinion to me privately, then, again, my email address is on the sidebar at both Planet Identity and Superpatterns.
With that, I'll bid you a good day and leave you to the ever-widening river of news...
