Personal Information

Jon Udell has an idea: “Suppose we create an ecosystem in which users maintain public profiles, Web services dispense them, and applications talk to those services? Your profile would contain only the facts you want to publicly assert about yourself. No secrets, no trust. We don’t know how to solve the trust problem yet. While we’re sorting that out, maybe we ought to bootstrap the formats, protocols, and mechanisms that will have to support whatever trust solutions emerge.”
