R-button Spec Work

Let's get more integrated with the r-button efforts. They've been open to our input. Joe will add some stuff to the wiki in that area.

An hour next week with Drummond and Iain, writing up r-buttons in a larger context than just PayChoice.

Future Agenda Topics

  1. Discuss the distinctions between a Service Endpoint and a Service Manager.


User Journey

The seven or eight steps a typical user would do. Not so much a technical specification, but a tool to help design the customer experience.

Eve wrote up a "current experience", a shopping trip to Staples, which has some illumination for what we are doing. What do you do? What permissions you give, what data, what terms you have to accept. All the ways this is unsatisfying today. She will send this out to the standards list as an "anti-scenario".

Interesting note: we have tools and social etiquette for sharing with friends, but none for sharing with companies, e.g., Eve sending her sister a picture of herself in a possible new outfit, for feedback. We don't have the ways to do that with companies, either as "companies" or to individuals within companies.

  1. Setup Personal Datastore with appropriate information
