Watch these letters: XNS This will be huge news for personal privacy. A
new technology called XNS went live at 7:00 am Eastern time. It marries
XML with Web agents and contract law to put you firmly in control of
information about yourself and the transactions you conduct over the Net.
The Seattle company that developed XNS, OneName, has turned over its and
patent rights and governance to a new non-profit called the XNS Public
Trust Organization, or XNSORG. The president is Adam Engst of TiDBITS fame
(and a TBTF Irregular). I've been honored to offer advice to the nascent
organization over the last six months. The gateway to the benefits of XNS
technology is your personal name. The first operational XNS Naming Agency,
OneName itself, is offering one personal name, free for life, to the first
million applicants. Visit the XNSORG services page to reserve your chosen
personal name. Think carefully about what name you choose -- XNS names are
meant to be permanent. The name can consist of up to 64 characters in any
Unicode language. (Mine is "Keith Dawson".) See the TBTF Log entry below
for a summary of XNS, and visit XNSORG for the full story. Monday
