Evan WIlliams thoughts about what online identity means

So, identity is an important concept. But I've always found it a 
confusing one. I think that's because it's ambiguous in most discussions 
what "identity" means.

A while back, Twitter's CTO, Greg Pass, and I created a framework I've 
found useful for thinking about all this. We reckoned there there are 
five different things people mean in different contexts when talking 
about identity and the Internet. (There are probably more, but these are 
key.) Each of these are offered as features of different services. 
Sometimes they are combined, sometimes they're not. And sometimes 
companies outsource these features to other services. With these pieces 
in mind, you can look at different companies, services, and protocols 
and realize which pieces of the identity puzzle they offer (or perhaps

I think Ev�s post is a really good start to answering the question why 
would one would want to identify a user in an application or website. 
Specifically, what does a user get from being asked to log-in or 
register to your application or website? Secondarily, it also provides 
the framework for deciding if or when you should use your own identity 
system or should leverage someone else�s such as Facebook Connect.

Ev misuses the term authentication in his post which is a little 
confusing since he seems to do it knowingly.

"That assumption has been with us since the beginning of time," said Shiva Singh, a molecular...

I am running IIS 6.0, on a Windows 2003 SP1 box.  I am using HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name to retrieve the users identity.  Recently, something changed on the the IIS server, some configuration.  But I can't figure out what.  Now the Name that is returned seems to be the IIS service name.  Not the name.  What do I reset, or change, to get the users NTLM name back.  I have anoymous turned off, and Windows authentication turned on.  The app didn't change, nor did the web.config.  It is something that got changed in the conf...

I'd like some method to be able to select @@identity from individual tables. The @@identity global variable is session specific, but only returns the identity column of the last table accessed. The problem is if the table you want @@identity from has an insert trigger that inserts into another table with @@identity. The value in @@identity after the entire insert is that from the second table, not the table where the original insert went. So, something like: "select @@identity from table_name" would prove to be most useful. Then again, a lost of the reasons for needi...

How to find out the next IDENTITY value for an identity column?
Hi, For an identity column, is there any command to find out what the next value will be? Jeff If you do an insert into the table and then select @@identity, you will know that the next row inserted will have that value +1 [unless there is an abrupt shutdown between then and when the next insert happens] but you have no control over whether your connection will be the one to do that insert or some other one- unless you have the table locked. So the answer is effectively "No". -bret Jeff wrote: > Hi, > > For an identity column, is there any ...
