Notes

VRM Starting Document

Sean has the hot potato. It's on a round-robin style. He's going to work on it this weekend and then we'll distribute it to the group.

With a target to next Wednesday.

The document outlines a bunch of ways and places that VRM applies. Scenarios and use cases of real-world examples.

Monthly Open Call

Dean will be leading a more public "Chatty Cathy" call to open the floor to new folks and more general conversation.

Mission Plan

Needs write up and further work. Joe will get a rev to the group by next Wednesday.

Dean asks for input. Charles volunteered. Doc says what we really need is a landing page that introduces folks to what we are doing. Something a bit more polished, soft and easy for newcomers. Brett led us to clarify that why we are doing this is so that we can get more traction raising funding.

Collaboration

We want VRM to be a conceptual and technical foundation that is tied to lots of nodes: academic and business and others. There are several business out there who are interested in coming up with some of the tools that we've talked about in the abstract. For example, what would be the thing we store our Personal Health Care records? Or the shopping cart that we carry around with us?

How can we "collude" rather than collide with folks who are working along similar efforts?

This worked great in the Internet Identity community. Doc would like to use that as a model for VRM. This is something we can talk about at IIW in December.

How do we create the broadest possible infrastructure for the most fertile fields?

Question: what is meant when we say "standards"? What degree of specificity to we mean?

Doc's Answer: protocols, VRM specific protocols (either original, revised, or co-opted). Protocols for sending data, policies for "selective disclosure". In the course of doing this, we are going to have to explore some of this.

What we don't want is a private infrastructure that limits the scope of what other people can do.

What we have now is there are protocols for Identity, then we are going to have to have protocol infrastructure. The problem is there is too much out there. Brett recommends taking the high road, define the requirements and work towards an interoperable protocol from those developing existing standards.
