Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

“Baked in identity” means through communication through nodes.

Not surprising - SSI/DID lack of knowledge.

House wiring is considered safe - analogy - needs to build trust over time - 100 years? - when did the breaker box become standard after so long?

Moving out issue - needs to be built in from the beginning.

“Delete” is the most expensive feature now - due to prioritization of data retention for decades - now it is an issue due to things like GDPR

Spruce - delegate permissions - shadow identities if not able to assign one - need something to delegate to - root identity

Should we use presence or time spent by a person in a room (or with a device) equal the identity (identities?) of that space? Need to do more research on this!

Implicit vs. explicit identity creation

Difference between provisioning a device with its own identity, logging into a device, and sharing from one identity to a device.
