As the use of federated identity grows, new technologies, new businesses and new collaborations continue to blossom. This session will highlight a number of the most recent activities, including international inter-federation activities, new European Union privacy requirements, emergent privacy managers, integration of collaboration tools, engagement with federal research activities, and the hints of harmony now beginning in the open source application space. The session will end with the traditional impassioned speech for librarians to bring their expertise to help on the critical issues emerging in human interface, privacy management, and metadata.
