After a six week bootstrap period, today marks the full start of Trust Anchor vouching on the Connect.Me private beta. Trust Anchors are the highest of the four trust levels in the Respect Trust Framework. Only Trust Anchors can give a Trust Anchor vouch. This blog post explains all about the special role of Trust Anchors, and this one explains the special value of a Trust Anchor vouch.
To mark this milestone, we are inviting any of first 676 Trust Anchors (or anyone who aspires to be one) to join us in doing a Ten for Trust blog post. The purpose is to put in your own words what a Trust Anchor vouch really means by listing ten people that you have or plan to give a Trust Anchor vouch to.
It’s a simple, public way to acknowledge the people who have earned special trust in your life.
A few suggestions:
- Put Ten for Trust in the title of the post to make it easier to find.
- Don’t feel you have to list exactly ten – list as many or as few people as you like.
- If the person you are listing is on Connect.Me, include a link to their page.
- Tweet a link to your post to us at @respectconnect using the hashtag #ten4trust and we’ll retweet it.
Here’s a list of Ten for Trust posts:
- Drummond Reed – Drummond’s Ten for Trust – Round One
- Marc Coluccio – Ten for Trust – Well let’s start with 6
- Georgina Lester – Meeting People Online – Who Do You Trust
- Stan Smith – Ten for Trust
- Stephen Ogden – Ten for Trust
- Nance Larson – What Trust Means to Me
- Michael Q. Todd – Ten for Trust on #connectme
Note: from now until the European Identity Conference (April 17-20 in Munich), we’ll update this list with links to new Ten for Trust posts.
