Drafted by Joe Andrieu, November 5, 2008
- Joe Andrieu
- Drummond Reed
- IIW Demo
- pre-IIW IPR conversation
Unfortunately, we don't have an IPR and as such the provenance of various IP under development is uncertain. One obstacle is that IPR requires an organization. Arguably OAuth did it without an org, but practically speaking, the wiki administrators served as the de facto org, serving as the recipient of record for all IP and the IP agreements.
We reviewed the left-side question as it came up from Iain, specifically outlying how the three-state/two-icon button addresses this. The proxy function is essentially the "other side" of particular relationship services. It is important to realize that the r-button represents whether or not VRM actions are available and whether or not any such action has been taken. It represents this to the user, not to the vendor. The vendor discovers whether or not such actions have taken relative to them at the relationship service (the proxy in Iain's case). So, the button as displayed to the user never needs to display information needed by the vendor.
