Digital Identity Matching

March/April 2004 issue of DIDW magazine has story on Jeff Jonas who builds system to link people together in non-obvious relationships (live in the same neighborhood). Also has a system that can squash similar records together based on evidence and then take them back apart because every piece of data has a source attribution that makes the squashing operation completely reversible.

Microcontent routing

"automating micro-content routing tends to reinforce the ubiquity of small consumable, searchable XHTML fragments" -- Dan Gillmor

RSS/Atom with BitTorrent as a DRM-free standard for peer to peer system.

Microsoft doesn't want to seed a poor-man's BizTalk server around RSS alerts.

Research Ideas

  • Rose, an RSS, OMPL database-based aggregator with filters, searching etc. Build a workflow engine that lets requests be mapped across a pipeline of actions. Smartlists let users configure specific RSS feeds from existing feeds. Rose serves as a platform for RSS research.
  • Certification for web services. How can they be monitored to provide a "Good-Housekeeping Seal of Approval"? Do conformace engines for various protocols and certify products as "compliant." Certify interoperability. Conformance engine is a hosted web service. Extend conformance services to producers and consumers. Do they produce valid messages? Also, monitoring systems for specific web services, certification standards for SLAs, etc. What should Web services do to be trusted? Trust levels. Is there a common legal framework that can be set up, like creative commons, for Web services?
  • Virutalized protocol servers for sercurity, based on identity. Easy to add logging and auditing service/risk management.
