We've always said that Opinity is a cool company. Their goal is to make it really easy to verify someone. Of course, we've heard of Opinity for a long time and they've done great things under their visionary CEO Ted Cho. But we had never met them until a few weeks ago when identity maven Kaliya Hamlin introduced us to Ted and Bill Washburn, Opinity’s Exec VP Communications & Business Development.
The Opinity Blog made the announcement today that we will be working together (yeah ... we work quickly). We're excited about working with Opinity. And while you might not see the full extent of our partnership when we launch on May 7, we’re excited that users will benefit from us working together over time.
One of the things we like about Opinity is that they share our commitment to build a more ethical society. They’re also staunch guardians of a person's privacy and share many of our values.
The Opinity blog makes reference to our partnership being synergistic like John Lennon and Paul McCartney ... to that I would say that our song today is "Come Together."
