Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine trends towards “user centricity” in web‐based digital identity technologies, and analyse these technologies in light of universal principles of human‐centred design and usability in order to recommend future directions.

Design/methodology/approach

Web users' habits and relevant usability research are analysed and requirements for identity‐enabled online interactions are proposed given this context. Modern identity technologies of various types are then studied to assess their ability to satisfy the requirements.

Findings

The results of these analyses point towards a possible explanation for the lack of wide adoption of today's user‐centric solutions.

Research limitations/implications

Based on the findings of the analyses, practical implications and recommendations are offered.

Originality/value

The paper's discussion of usability factors to consider and its set of final recommendations in light of these factors are new work that may be useful to identity management developers and deployers looking to achieve better user adoption, as well as to researchers and innovators in the fields of social networking and vendor relationship management.

Abstract

This article addresses the implications of the new Web meta‐language XML for World Wide Web searching. Compared to HTML, XML is more concerned with structure of data than documents. These XML data structures, especially when declared in document type definitions, should prove conducive to precise, context rich searching. Some of the directions the XML language is intended to move are briefly covered. Additionally, trends in World Wide Web development with respect to beta versions of the XML language are discussed.

Abstract

Outlines the international travels of Clement Allan Tisdell in the period 1965‐1996 and an Australian journey made to Adelaide in 1962 for academic reasons and indicates the influence of these journeys on his publications, outlook and intellectual evolution. Emphasises how varied the life of an economist can be and the importance of international social contacts for academic development. Because of the extent of his travels, descriptions and analysis of most of his journeys are brief. Consequently, a longer story still remains untold.
