Laws of Identity (Pamela-style)

Kim has been working on a less internerdy version of the Laws of Identity – but I’m not sure the current version would resonate with people like my Mom. So – being the go-getter that I am, I had to take a minute and come up with alternatives. What do you think?

If I could use any terms I wanted and assume that everyone understood them, I could get even shorter:

  1. Don’t share my information behind my back.
  2. Don’t take more information than you need.
  3. Don’t expose my information unnecessarily.
  4. Don’t link me or allow others to link me unless I want to be linked.
  5. Don’t lock me into silos.
  6. Don’t tell me to RTFM in order to be secure.
  7. Don’t let the product interfere with the ceremony.

  1. I love it. I’m a big believer in the Strunk & White school of writing style (and often have to fight against myself to maintain it), so I appreciate the clarity and brevity. It shows that, after megabytes of discussion, the laws of identity are really about common sense and courtesy.
