Holding onto trust@worthiness.org

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Worthiness.org is [reserved] on the list of domains that I am renting for nfoCentrale.  Here’s what that is about.

David Weinberger (via Wikipedia)When I was acquiring the domains for the TROST project, I was also looking for anything related to trustworthiness.  That was too much to hope for (as was trust itself).  But worthiness.org was available.  That put me immediately in mind of the way David Weinberger uses self@evident.com.

What I want for trust@worthiness.org is a digital signature that can be used as part of certifying (usually via countersigning) that an open-system component is developed and confirmable in a manner consistent with the TROSTing principles around open-system trustworthiness.

I also saw the site as a way of providing a cataloguing of components that had been so identified and what versions of those were, how to find out more about them, etc.

This is not well-thought-out, and you will notice that there is no http://worthiness.org site at this point.  I shall remedy that, after determining whether I can make more add-on domains under my current web-hosting service account.
