Please add suggested questions for the panelists in this section:

  • Q: Facebook seems to work really well for millions of users every day. What's the problem?
  • Q: What's stopping you? What are the obstacles? Are they political or technical or social?

  • Q: Who is going to be the identity broker? Are they going to take it all in and farm it all out?
  • Q: What does it really mean to be open?
