Synopsis: A guide to transactional analysis. In non-technical language, it
offers advice on gaining control of yourself, your relationships and your
future, no matter what has happened in the past.
I haven't got a clue what transactional analysis used to mean but now it means that someone is watching all my transactions, analyzing them then selling them for their own gain. XDI is about "gaining control of yourself, your relationships and your future, no matter what has happened in the past."
Another reason I like the I'm OK, You're OK analogy is that XDI is about interoperability; if you are using LID, LDAP, FOAF, SXIP, XRI/XDI it doesn't matter, they should all work together, they are all OK. They all have different strengths and weaknesses but should be able to work together to give us all the control we desire in our futures. This isn’t some hippy dippy idealistic dream, this is the reality of our success or failure, collaboration and competition are the driving forces that will keep us focused and innovating.
