Some feedback.

This preso is going to be Web organic (hopefully) thus it would be nice 
to have Henry's details added to slide #1 if he is co-author of the preso.

Thou must dogfood, thus you should both list your WebIDs :-)

Currently you have the following <head/> section in the slidy presentation.
<title>Identity, Discovery and Authorization at W3C</title>
<meta name="copyright"

    href="slidy.css" />
<script src="slidy.js"
    charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript"></script>
<style type="text/css">
<!-- your custom style rules -->

Again, lets do some dogfooding via <link/> with pointers to related 
material esp. esw wiki, and specific demo URLs in there.

What about the RDFa? Well that can of course come later. Anyway, here 
[1] is the URI of the preso in one our of Linked Data Spaces :-)
