Imagine a world without computers and without digital registration. Do you feel happy when you see this world? Or do you feel a bit sad?

We will look at the history of the the Danish social security number - Civil Personal Registration (CPR). CPR identifies all citizens in Denmark. The CPR is more than 50 years old and it has stories to tell. Stories that may teach us something on the world or registration.

In scholarly communication the ORCID iD appears to be more and more essential. In many aspects ORCID and the CPR may look alike, and we will see if lessons can be learnt from the history of CPR in ORCID implementations and developments.
