it would nice to get user story doc done between TPAC
13:22:25 [hhalpin]
sorry before TPAC!
13:22:45 [mischat]
christine has taken a high level ID, so that the use cases can be clustered
13:22:59 [hhalpin]
is this work online?
13:23:10 [mischat]
high level concepts to classify the user stories
13:23:23 [mischat]
for organisational purposes
13:23:49 [mischat]
christine to check if she can get the document she was been working on online
13:23:50 [rreck]
please do
13:24:33 [mischat]
so christine will aim to share the structure she has built with the groups
13:24:43 [cperey]

Goal, Summary, Actors, Preconditions, Trigger, Basic Course of Events, Alternative Paths, postconditons, business rules and then metadata about author/date.

13:24:53 [mischat]

13:25:58 [mischat]
harry would like to get some summaries and pre-conditions up
13:26:08 [rreck]
-1 business rules
13:26:08 [bblfish]
Just as interest, here is a very developed set of user stories for the future of identity with real stories. Clearly we don't need to go that far. But it is an interesting example
13:26:10 [Zakim]
13:26:15 [mischat]
simplify the use stories to 3 parts
13:26:21 [petef]
+1 for simplification
13:26:29 [mischat]
summary, pre-conditions, post-conditions ?
13:26:30 [rreck]
i think actors is self evident possibly
13:26:48 [mischat]
can you repeat that hhalpin ?
13:26:50 [hhalpin]
pre-condition/basic course of events/goal accomplished (maybe alternative paths)?
13:26:53 [mischat]
13:26:57 [hhalpin]
So just have 3 categories for every use-case.
13:27:01 [mischat]
13:27:10 [bblfish]
seems ok
13:27:24 [mischat]
i am happy to go through and summarise if need be
13:27:39 [bblfish]
ok. I am in the same offices as tim right now

very developed user stories on identity with very in depth characters
13:29:46 [mischat]
xmpp, and how it can be integrated from the social web
13:30:01 [hhalpin]
Peter go for it!
13:30:31 [mischat]
and how it will fit in with the w3c and the wider community
13:30:52 [mischat]
people which are interested in microblogging, buddy cloud
13:31:09 [hhalpin]
the relationship with OMB would be interesting.
13:31:19 [mischat]
trying to figure out what problems the SWXG are trying to solve
13:31:28 [mischat]
and how the XMPP community can help
13:31:55 [mischat]
the SWXG has noticed that the W3C has ignored the social web tech
13:32:16 [mischat]
and the group wants to write an introductory report on the landscape of technologies in the social web
13:32:59 [mischat]
for example the widgets work, and the open social work, and how this is pushing towards the notion of a decentralised social network
13:33:28 [mischat]
so the group would like to figure how the W3C can help influence future development on the social Web
13:34:07 [Zakim]
+ +1.314.705.aaff
13:34:24 [Zakim]
13:34:50 [mischat]
and the group is interested in how the technologies can be built upon, technologies like openid, oauth, xmpp
13:35:29 [hhalpin]
(sorry, should have went through them one at a time!)
13:35:40 [mischat]
xmpp grew out of instance messaging
13:35:42 [mischat]
13:36:24 [mischat]
the initial idea was to build ontop of XML, taking the ideas of Jabber and building on XML to build a stream
13:36:27 [hhalpin]
1. Final Report on over-arching technologies 2. Adoption of social web technologies by W3C internally 3. How the W3C should evolve to interact with the wider social web commuity
13:36:53 [mischat]
the idea was to have a peer-2-peer based method of shifting xml between points on the web
13:37:02 [hhalpin]
so it started out very general purpose
13:37:09 [hhalpin]
that's interesting
13:37:16 [mischat]
xmpp could be a generalised transport mechanism
13:37:24 [mischat]
s/could/was designed/
13:37:41 [danbri]
13:37:47 [mischat]
rpc technology, some gaming, file sharing, file sharing, google wave
13:37:53 [mischat]
are all built on top of xmpp
13:37:55 [danbri]
13:38:13 [danbri]
re google talk see
13:38:18 [mischat]
google talk using xmpp for their signalling channel to set up voice and video calls
13:38:31 [danbri]
(google talk basic text messages are themselves xmpp)
13:38:37 [mischat]
there is a standards body
13:38:46 [danbri]
re social, ... see
13:38:51 [mischat]
pidgin is implementing an open-source xmpp
13:38:55 [hhalpin]
how oauth and openid fit in with XMPP is quite interesting.
13:38:58 [danbri]
oauth -
13:39:00 [mischat]
plans are afoot to use oauth and xmpp
13:39:12 [danbri]
fireeagle and xmpp see
13:39:18 [mischat]
this is used in fireeagle
13:39:33 [danbri]
(also not mentioned but hey... rdf query over xmpp - )
13:40:02 [hhalpin]
I thought it switched from polling to pushing...
13:40:14 [mischat]
polling is a problem on services, and xmpp fixes this by pushing
13:40:28 [mischat]
this technology is becoming popular for real time search
13:40:49 [mischat]
this can save service providers on hardware wear and tear
13:41:14 [mischat]
apple is doing some experiments with push for their iphone tech
13:41:21 [hhalpin]
13:41:24 [hhalpin]
Is pubsub
13:41:30 [hhalpin]
(I think)
13:42:32 [mischat]
there is work in the xmpp community on the transport tech side, but there isn't much movement in the development of social software
13:42:34 [stpeter]
hhalpin: that is correct
13:42:40 [hhalpin]
Good overview
13:42:56 [hhalpin]
go for danbri!
13:43:04 [mischat]
perhaps the w3c would be a place where the xmpp could integrate with social web people
13:43:38 [danbri]
q re MUC (multi user chat)
13:43:45 [mischat]
danbri question : lots of people are stuck in the IRC world, and IM chats are advancing faster than multi user chat
13:44:35 [mischat]
so there is xmpp work in an online chat room chess game? and this builds upon a multi user chat room
13:45:11 [mischat]
MUC could be used for real-time modeling of a XML sequence, could be used to collaboratively write documents
13:45:37 [mischat]
xmpp has some strong points ;
13:45:57 [mischat]
XML, a good thing, we fixed some security issues which IRC had
13:46:02 [hhalpin]
one question would be if XMPP should at some point replace IRC as a communication point for W3C.
13:46:09 [tinkster]
hmmm... create a MUC, invite and start working on XHTML snippets...
13:46:33 [hhalpin]
yes, this might be an effective way of working although the W3C has a lot of infrastructure invested in IRC.
13:46:36 [mischat]
xmpp has a cert based authentication
13:46:51 [mischat]
and doesn't reveal your IP address as in IRC
13:47:46 [mischat]
there is ongoing work to distribute rooms over a network so that if a peer goes down
13:48:08 [mischat]
xmpp community haven't tried to get rid off IRC, or other tech
13:49:01 [mischat]
collaborative point of view, you can send structure data, you could have forms pop up for voting
13:49:06 [mischat]
dod ?
13:49:28 [hhalpin]
department of defence mischat
13:49:36 [mischat]
xmpp is the only approved chat mechanism for the dod
13:49:37 [hhalpin]
part of the usa government
13:50:02 [mischat]
IRC had too many security issues, and the dod are moving to use XMPP group chat
13:50:20 [hhalpin]
native prescence +1
13:50:29 [mischat]
and we have a link to the chess game ?
13:50:48 [petef]
13:51:17 [mischat]
XMPP has support for native presence information, and for network availability
13:51:23 [hajons]
13:51:30 [caribou]
audience segregation for presence?
13:51:51 [mischat]
presence information is not on IRC
13:51:55 [danbri]
13:52:11 [melvster]
pidgin handles both irc and xmpp -- im using it now ...
13:52:17 [tinkster]
Well, I'm currently on Pidgin which does both IRC and XMPP chats.
13:52:48 [mischat]
so when the distributed room problem gets solved in xmpp then it may be a viable replacement for IRC
13:52:49 [stpeter]
13:52:52 [mischat]
i too use pidgin
13:53:49 [mischat]
there is lot of ongoing work on the xmpp front to build towards the distributed muc
13:53:56 [mischat]
lots of open source implementations
13:54:31 [mischat]
there are projects which are working on clustering and high availability for high volumes of users
13:54:47 [danbri]
13:54:54 [mischat]
13:55:11 [mischat]
the prosody project is having a go at the distributedmuc

hajons, now that xmpp is standardised, do you think that big companies like google will not implement the standard?
13:56:55 [hhalpin]
hajons asked about standards now that XMPP is being used in Google Wave etc.
13:56:57 [Zakim]
- +1.314.705.aaff
13:57:37 [mischat]
xmpp which used to be called jabber, came about 10 years ago, distributed comms model, and the exchange of XML turned it into XMPP
13:57:46 [mischat]
rfc came about in 2004
13:58:15 [mischat]
since the work was put into the rfc, people can now write their own implementations
13:58:24 [rreck]
who would have ever thought standards could promote interoperability?
13:58:40 [mischat]
google talk, extended the spec for the video signalling
13:58:46 [mischat]
13:58:55 [hhalpin]
q+ hhalpin
13:59:10 [mischat]
jingle work was very similar to google talk
13:59:51 [mischat]
and the jingle tech is now in the xmpp specs, and google are now looking to harmonise the open-source implementations of jingle with their google talk
14:01:36 [mischat]
still early days in google wave. google wave are trying to develop the technology in the open, which was different to the google talk. google talk was implemented and then it was released in the wild
14:01:52 [petef]

harry question : are there plans for the xmpp auth to be integrated with openid
14:04:48 [mischat]
and second question, will xmpp integrate with the TLS?
14:05:35 [hhalpin]
ah, that clears things up a bit from the outside.
14:05:48 [danbri]
(interesting, i was wondering whether foaf:jabberID needed updating)
14:05:54 [mischat]
xmpp has always used ssl for encryption
14:06:43 [hhalpin]
starTLS to upgrade a port to encryption - but that's per-hop not end-to-end (i.e. OTR?)
14:06:45 [mischat]
since 2004, there has been a start_tls command, which is a per hop encrypted
14:06:55 [mischat]
14:07:11 [bblfish]
very cool: start with TLS and upgrade to encrypted when you want encryption. Should use this for foaf+ssl :-)
14:07:50 [mischat]
it is possible that there is clear-text on the server
14:08:02 [tinkster]
bblfish, HTTP/HTTPS doesn't allow upgrades to encrypted connections on the same port.
14:08:09 [mischat]
as the moment there is no end-to-end encryption
14:08:13 [hhalpin]
what's the issues with OTR?
14:08:16 [mischat]
they have looked at pptp
14:08:22 [mischat]
and have looked smime
14:08:41 [hhalpin]
so just go end-to-end TLS
14:08:57 [mischat]
but people dont have certs, so they have looked a tls, and how it can be reworked to do end-end encryption
14:09:03 [hhalpin]
OTR is a bit of a hack with weird signalling...can only encrypt plain text message.
14:09:18 [mischat]
in OTR you can only encrypt the plain text messages
14:09:25 [hhalpin]
Doesn't encrypt the rest of the XML
14:09:26 [bblfish]
tinkster: I thought that is what peter said
14:09:34 [hhalpin]
ah, that makes a lot of sense
14:09:38 [mischat]
for example you can only encrypt the message body, e.g. "Hello World"
14:09:45 [mischat]
not the whole XML message
14:10:18 [hhalpin]
14:10:34 [mischat]
OTR does not give end-to-end security
14:10:52 [bblfish]
14:10:53 [Zakim]
14:10:55 [mischat]
there are issues with certs

encrypted group chat end-to-end?
14:11:16 [hhalpin]
very hard problem.
14:11:22 [mischat]
for doing end-to-end group is a hard problem
14:11:35 [hhalpin]
the default w3c chat is not encrypted
14:12:10 [hhalpin]
so it's still in the scope but in the future
14:12:14 [hhalpin]
room itself with certifcate?

x509 certificates is the key issue as most people don't have them - although everyone does have a social networking page :)
14:24:01 [mischat]
this is used by the army, because they all have certs, allowing for X.509 certs
14:24:08 [mischat]
thanks tinkster :)
14:24:14 [pchampin]
sounds like a pretty good idea!
14:24:52 [mischat]
the aim is to have your client create a cert, which it could be used to do end-to-end encryption
14:24:53 [pchampin]
(rather than having pidgin storing all our passwords cleartext...)
14:25:11 [mischat]
pchampin: pidgin is very naughty like that
14:25:44 [mischat]
in foaf+ssl, your cert is assigned to a URI, which is resolvable

14:37:02 [hhalpin]
danbri: but schemas should be informal
14:37:15 [hhalpin]
can we build hackfests into our program
14:37:18 [danbri]
i mean, if you're doing a protocol, it needs more review and formality than making a descriptive schema
14:37:21 [danbri]
+1 re hackfests
14:37:33 [mischat]
schemas may best be built informally, like at a hack fest, where at protocols tend to need more effort, and as a result might need a working group
