IBM on Monday announced a new open-source initiative meant to boost security and give consumers more control over their personal online identity information. Code-named "Project Higgins," the initiative is a collaborative effort by Big Blue, Novell and Parity Communications to develop security software for user-centric identity management. It is based on a concept developed by Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet and Society and is similar to Microsoft's planned InfoCard.

Hooray for IBM for their foresight in consumer control of their personal data, and Fischer Int'l for developing the software to get the job done. This idea, including the technology to support it, is already gaining momentum in the United Kingdom. I have been suggesting just such an approach in the U.S. for a year now with my concept of how it should be implemented.
That is, by passing federal legislation to give the individual control over their name and private information, and, while we’re at it, pay them when it is sold. You can read about it in my blog, The Dunning Letter at: http://www.thedunningletter.blogspot.com.

Johnson & Johnson
Moderna
Pfizer-BioNTech
I'll take any COVID-19 vaccine that is made available to me right now.
I'm not sure. I need more time to make an educated decision.
I'm not interested in getting a COVID-19 vaccine at this time.
