Re: [higgins-dev] The need for a replacement for the word InfoCard

I like something more progressive sounding. Maybe something like DigIX (Digital Identity _expression_). I like how that looks and sounds.

Over lunch with Kim Cameron (I was on a panel with Kim at MIX06 in Vegas on Tuesday) we discussed the word "InfoCard".


But first some background. InfoCard is a Microsoft code-name, their product offering will be called something else. The demos of InfoCard that I've seen show a button entitled "Sign in with InfoCard" on a prototype e-commerce site's sign in page.  


We discussed what this button text should really say considering that both Vista/InfoCard and, Linux/Firefox/Higgins (and perhaps other things) are capable of signing in? We (Higgins) don't want to have the word InfoCard there, and it seems neither does Microsoft. Kim suggested "Information Card". That didn't exactly thrill me. I told him that in Higgins we call these things HTags.
