Someone's riding a horse?
15:22:43 [petef]
zakim, who is riding a horse?
15:22:43 [Zakim]
I don't understand your question, petef.
15:22:48 [rreck]
david i think
15:22:48 [danbri]
david, there are clippety clop noises in the b/g
15:23:01 [mischat_]
zakim, who is making noise?
15:23:02 [rreck]
me too, its too quiet
15:23:12 [Zakim]
mischat_, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: ??P41 (10%), ??P43 (5%)
15:23:24 [mischat_]
thank danbri
15:23:28 [mischat_]
15:23:47 [hhalpin]
Zakim, next agendum
15:23:47 [Zakim]
agendum 12. "Invited Speaker: David Recordon and Luke Shepard from Facebook" taken up [from hhalpin]
15:24:09 [davidrecordon]
let me switch phones
15:24:14 [davidrecordon]
while luke introduces himself
15:24:26 [mischat_]
yay this is better
15:24:30 [tpa]
Luke: really happy to be here, thanks for inviting us
15:24:41 [tpa]
… I worked on Facebook Connect and a lot of OpenID stuff
15:24:50 [tpa]
… both the relying partners and identity provider side
15:25:03 [tpa]
… mostly interested today in answering your questions or finding what you're interested in
15:25:19 [Zakim]
+ +1.650.796.aajj
15:25:21 [mischat_]
... also interested in OAuth in activity streams stuff ...
15:25:23 [Zakim]
15:25:30 [bblfish]
15:25:31 [mischat_]
15:25:35 [hhalpin]
much more clear!
15:25:39 [DKA]
zakim, aajj is davidecordon
15:25:39 [Zakim]
+davidecordon; got it
15:25:52 [tpa]
davidrecordon: we're very excited to be here
15:26:05 [tpa]
… we focused on OpenID and OAuth and those areas at Facebook
15:26:19 [tpa]
… we can both talk about OpenID and OAuth have been developed, but with Chris Messina & others coming on
15:26:33 [tpa]
… it would make more sense for us to talk about our stance on privacy, identity
15:26:45 [tpa]
davidrecordon: feel free to jump in when you want
15:26:53 [tpa]
… but when we think about web standards, we ran into some challenges
15:27:02 [tpa]
… we move extremely quickly from an engineering perspective
15:27:12 [tpa]
… a lot of things done by very few people
15:27:24 [tpa]
… teams of 2-3 people (or less)
15:27:29 [tpa]
… Luke did OpenID himself
15:27:35 [tpa]
… we have really small teams working by themselves
15:27:50 [tpa]
… To balance this, we try to think about how to be involved in Standardization efforts
15:28:19 [tpa]
davidrecordon: When we did things like Facebook connect, we were really trying to go fast, find partners, iterate
15:28:29 [hhalpin]
notes that this continual iteration is not built into W3C right now...but we could recommend that in our final report.
15:28:32 [tpa]
… in contrast standards efforts take a lot of time (we understand why, we appreciate that)
15:28:47 [tpa]
… but the challenges we face as a company were how to go at this quickly and iteratively
15:29:02 [tpa]
hhalpin: one thing the XG is doing is to write a report to the W3C and all member, advisory board
15:29:03 [rreck] has apparently cached email messages i previously deleted
15:29:20 [tpa]
… including: “here's what the W3C could do to make its process more lightweight and more appealing to social web people, etc.”
15:29:26 [tpa]
… we would love to flag this
15:29:37 [tpa]
… ie: the process being a problem for Facebook to join in
15:30:08 [tpa]
davidrecordon: when we look at OpenID, OAuth, ActivityStreams, you notice that it took them just a few years or less to get implemented by a major company
15:30:17 [tpa]
for ActivityStreams, just a few months
15:30:25 [danbri]
q+ to ask what level of interop (eg. descriptive schemas) you look for with OpenSocial
15:30:33 [tpa]
davidrecordon: we need to get to a point where people feel safe about specifications to ship them
15:30:50 [DKA]
15:31:03 [Zakim]
15:31:12 [davidrecordon]
tpa: and that with each one the time from start to shipping a draft on a really large site is decreasing with each specification
15:31:29 [tpa]
Luke: my only experience with standards is OpenID and OAuth but yes, it was definitely useful to have expectations of things being drafted and changing often but moving quickly
15:32:00 [tpa]
… ?? … Part of this is a cultural thing, it is sometimes better to do something ourselves rather than violate specifications
15:32:10 [hhalpin]
ack danbri
15:32:10 [Zakim]
danbri, you wanted to ask what level of interop (eg. descriptive schemas) you look for with OpenSocial
15:32:11 [tpa]
… It helps us adapt to new challenges
15:32:13 [rreck]
clearly adhering to a spec takes increased resource and effort
15:32:40 [tpa]
DKA: if I could jump in briefly, and reiterate: one of the things we're going to try to do here it make recommendations
15:32:52 [tpa]
… about how the W3C could be more involved in the lanscape of all of the standards
15:33:04 [hhalpin]
notes that this is when privacy comes in.
15:33:05 [tpa]
… we are try to list and catalog the things that are done out there
15:33:32 [tpa]
… and ask the questions for each, is this something we should try to bring inside the W3C, or next steps that should be done inside the W3C
15:33:39 [DKA]
ack danbri
15:33:41 [tpa]
… basically, how the W3C could help build this Social Web world
15:33:42 [rreck]
15:33:44 [mischat_]
15:34:05 [tpa]
danbri: we're on a fact-finding mission
15:34:09 [rreck]
mischat: thanks again
15:34:23 [Zakim]
15:34:26 [tpa]
… people say “how, the W3C will come in and offer me this big plan”
15:34:38 [tpa]
… but the W3C is offering a lot of things
15:34:41 [stpeter]
stpeter has joined #swxg
15:34:45 [tpa]
… Widgets, social APIs
15:35:10 [tpa]
danbri: my question was about OpenSocial
15:35:28 [tpa]
danbri: do you see a value in bringing ?? and OpenSocial towards convergence
15:35:42 [hhalpin]
s/??/Facebook Platform
15:35:57 [tpa]
Luke: yes, definitely I was working on a platform when OpenSocial came out
15:36:00 [danbri]
particular q, is whether schema convergence might be cheaper/easier than protocol convergence
15:36:07 [danbri]
between facebook platform and opensocial platform
15:36:10 [tpa]
… at that time we were moving away from the direction OS was taking
15:36:41 [tpa]
… at this point things are moving very quickly and I'm a big fan of standards, it's just a question of how to get there, but in time, yes, it'll be one big thing
15:36:55 [tpa]
davidrecordon: the questions is how can the W3C develop stuff like OpenSocial
15:36:57 [hhalpin]
q+ OWF and W3C
15:37:04 [mischat_]
15:37:08 [tpa]
… or other stuff like webfinger or salmon
15:37:12 [hhalpin]
q+ OWF and W3C
15:37:17 [hhalpin]
q+ "OWF and W3C"
15:37:33 [tpa]
davidrecordon: the other things is what about Facebook Platform and OS together
15:37:38 [DKA]
davidrecordon - do you have a URL for that?
15:37:52 [tpa]
… people are looking for standards but also for the organization to get out of the way and let them do their stuff
15:38:05 [tpa]
… there's a wiki, a mailing list, a svn repository
15:38:09 [mischat_] ?
15:38:14 [danbri]
15:38:36 [tpa]
… the problem the OWF is trying to tackle is Intellectual Property
15:39:09 [tpa]
… and the next thing we're working on is letting people withdraw and vote
15:39:23 [Zakim]
15:39:24 [tpa]
… basically it's much easier if the process is not codified?
15:39:51 [tpa]
danbri: what you do with the foundation and make sure you have the paperwork, ensure the companies don't mess it all up :)
15:40:07 [tpa]
davidrecordon: for those efforts to be successful, they have to have corporate involvment
15:40:15 [tpa]
… from companies like Google, MS, Yahoo, MySpace
15:40:35 [tpa]
… it is a challenge; how do you involve people outside of the Bay Area?
15:40:52 [tpa]
… the social web standards tend to come from the same people but that's by accident
15:41:25 [davidrecordon]
15:41:55 [oshani]
15:41:58 [hhalpin]
I guess your talking about the "my name isn't accepted" by the software.
15:42:00 [tpa]
danbri: ?? If the Social platforms we build keep the schema piece separate we won't have a problem involving people from around the world
15:42:01 [hhalpin]
scribe: oshani
15:42:39 [oshani]
Luke: lot of efforts don't come from the international side
15:42:39 [Zakim]
15:43:02 [oshani]
... separation happening in open social
15:43:45 [oshani]
... Activity streams have a separate spec
15:43:58 [hhalpin]
sounds a bit like RDF
15:43:58 [rreck]
taxomies for verbs
15:44:26 [oshani]
... FB platform has lot of intl involvement
15:44:48 [oshani]
... opensocial is also the same
15:45:05 [oshani]
... so even though they started in the bay area, but they've grown
15:45:12 [lshepard]
hhalpin: there was a lot of discussion re: rdf, but activitystreams is considered easier to implement
15:45:36 [oshani]
hhalpin: what do you see as a useful role of the W3C in this area?
15:45:47 [rreck]
15:46:04 [oshani]
... what are missing around policy, privacy and provenance from a tech level?
15:47:43 [oshani]
lshepard: when working with large groups the W3C process is appropriate
15:49:07 [oshani]
... useful to think of "identitiy" and "verified identity"
15:50:27 [hhalpin]
so sort of web of trust issues...
15:50:40 [oshani]
15:51:31 [oshani]
lshepard: enable trust using the platform
15:51:52 [mischat_]
i met some people which are trying to use your social graph to enable online IOUs
15:52:05 [rreck]
IMHO, peoples' identity are instantiations of a role
15:52:33 [Zakim]
15:52:35 [pchampin]
interesting thought, rreck :)
15:52:42 [oshani]
... lot of annoymous things on the Web can be done using FB connect
15:53:10 [rreck]
people are multifaceted right? at least complex people are
15:53:17 [Zakim]
15:53:29 [hhalpin]
and who else would be in the IRC?
15:53:30 [hhalpin]
15:53:39 [oshani]
davidrecordon: FB links and mutual comments can socially verify idenities
15:53:45 [bblfish]
cool, that fits with foaf+ssl identify verification
15:53:52 [danbri]
that makes a lot of sense (socially verified, ....)
15:54:24 [melvster]
sounds a bit like web of trust
15:54:30 [mischat_]
sounds a bit like the web ...
15:55:49 [DKA]

15:56:17 [rreck]
in real life you have contextual cues you dont have online
15:56:19 [bblfish]
yep, foaf+ssl uses little pieces of verified information to make identity decisions, just like Facebook. What is missing with OpenId is the social network part
15:57:07 [oshani]
lshepard: socially verified identities using soft cues (mutual connections) which users can make decision whether they can trust or not
15:58:07 [rreck]
presenting valence on the attribute rather than a +/- might be a strategy
15:58:21 [oshani]
Adam: mutual friends can induce not-intended friendship relationships. From a business pov it is important
15:58:25 [bblfish]
15:58:30 [hhalpin]
15:58:37 [oshani]
lshepard: lot of orgs are working on that.
15:58:41 [DKA]

15:59:39 [pchampin]
15:59:57 [Zakim]
15:59:59 [davidrecordon]
I'm good :)
16:00:12 [stpeter]
over time WFM
16:00:43 [Zakim]
16:00:45 [hhalpin]
I know the W3C is looking at this "policy language" idea in this area
16:00:53 [rreck]
the relationships on fb are reciprocal but in real life that is not necessarily the case
16:00:55 [oshani]
lshepard: for each user we want to model privacy for each different fields based on the relationship between individuals
16:01:22 [hhalpin]
seems like some sort of round-trip would be necessary for per object privacy...
16:01:28 [mischat_]
ah, stpeter, I could I email you a link to my summary of your talk, so you can eyeball it?
16:01:30 [hhalpin]
but the overhead there might be really high...
16:01:42 [oshani]
... activity streams will have different views based on who's viewing it
16:01:47 [stpeter]
mischat_: sure thing, my pleasure
16:01:56 [mischat_]
thanks stpeter
16:02:10 [rreck]

FabGandon has left #swxg

"W3C Workshop on Access Control Application Scenarios"
16:02:40 [stpeter]
mischat_: IRC doesn't have strong identity :)
16:02:49 [hhalpin]
I know this is TimBL's main research area, oshani and lalana could speak to it..
16:03:14 [mischat_]
your IP address points to your ;)
16:03:25 [rreck]
if we could standardize on vocabulary it would be a start
16:03:30 [mischat_]
like you said in your talk, IRC allows for IP address snooping
16:03:44 [stpeter]
mischat_: heh, true, that's probably good enough
16:03:50 [stpeter]
rreck: agreed
16:04:06 [tinkster]
stpeter, NickServ provides a reasonable level of identity on some IRC servers.

bblfish: Is FB thinking of how to distribute social networks?
16:04:42 [hhalpin]
I bet a paper from Facebook on this problem would be very much appreciated. Both how it's tackled and the interop issue.
16:05:14 [bblfish]
is there any thinking at Facebook on how to distribute social networks? So that all sites could work using a similar mechanism of trust, but in a distributed way, where I can put my profile on my home page and link to someone on Facebook?
16:05:21 [rreck]
16:05:22 [mischat_]
16:05:27 [DKA]
16:05:27 [oshani]
davidrecordon: can use FB connect
16:05:53 [mischat_]
google seem to be touching in this direction :
16:06:06 [oshani]

... What is your opinion about the W3C patent policy?
16:07:44 [stpeter]
I think it would be helpful for each of the speakers who've come through here could read and comment on the "manifesto"
16:07:55 [hhalpin]
We will definitely send it to everybody and the list.
16:08:00 [mischat_]
16:08:00 [stpeter]
hhalpin: cool
16:08:21 [hhalpin]
I mean, it doesn't exist yet. In fact, if *someone* wants to take editorship that would be great.
16:09:31 [hhalpin]
so people don't say have to do a full patent search or talk to a lawyer just to interact with a draft.
16:09:34 [hhalpin]
I would assume
16:09:41 [stpeter]
hhalpin: yes, that someone would receive great praise, I'm sure :)
16:09:48 [hhalpin]
hint hint anyone :)
16:10:15 [rreck]
editorship of what?
16:10:21 [danbri]
16:10:35 [danbri]
16:10:36 [hhalpin]
+1 to somehow having these tools in a central place.
16:10:49 [hhalpin]
Just wondering if there was something obviously wrong, but if not...
16:11:15 [danbri]
i like idea of collab around *tools* as a healthy and de-politicised way for all these different standard-y communities to collaborate
16:11:16 [oshani]
davidrecordon: We prefer a more iterative model (where everyone's involved is bound to the policy ?)
16:12:05 [rreck]
i think consensus sometimes degrades implementation
16:12:26 [hhalpin]
16:12:31 [hhalpin]
there's the news on REX.
16:12:35 [danbri]
( stpeter, is there something bad in something in )
16:12:37 [danbri]
ah thx
16:12:40 [davidrecordon]
it's strange, having everyone bound makes it hard for companies to participate from the start
16:12:53 [davidrecordon]
so dealing with it in the end is nicer, if you don't have to worry about withdrawl
16:13:03 [davidrecordon]
assuming everyone is working under good intentions
16:13:09 [hhalpin]
it would be good to get our lawyer thinking about this.
16:13:23 [hhalpin]
Rigo should be at OpenID summit or IIW I think...
16:13:35 [hhalpin]
but yes, "no worry about withdrawal" is perfect.
16:14:01 [hhalpin]
16:14:03 [oshani]
DKA: from a corporate perspective patent policies are good
16:14:14 [DKA]
16:14:22 [Zakim]
16:14:30 [rreck]
the conversation has kinda left what i wanted to say
16:14:31 [Zakim]
16:14:31 [oshani]
davidrecordon: clarification on the earlier point: a lightweight process is preferred
16:14:51 [stpeter]
we would have liked to use REX for doing SVG over XMPP, but were prevented from doing so
16:15:12 [danbri]
i'd like to see w3c be more of a community of peers, where bad-players get named and shamed by other participating members a bit more
16:15:20 [danbri]
16:15:24 [davidrecordon]
danbri +1 :)
16:15:37 [mischat_]
danbri +1
16:16:03 [danbri]
w3c team can't name-and-shame easily, because of the member fees aspect making it tricky to be rude to the paying members; but other members shouldn't be so restricted!
16:16:04 [hhalpin]
I just wanted to know how OWF was planning on doing legal differently than W3C, and if there should be some knowledge sharing on this between W3C and OWF.
16:16:20 [DKA]

16:17:07 [danbri]
yes, thanks lshephard!
16:17:09 [rreck]
16:17:41 [hhalpin]
(sorry, didn't mean to go into patent blackhole, but happy to see the conversation going in way danbri's pointing)
16:18:01 [oshani]
davidrecordon: patent policies needs to be more transparent
16:18:10 [rreck]
right, no biggy.
16:18:18 [tlr]
16:18:47 [tlr]
16:18:49 [oshani]
danbri: W3C is not monolithic, and there are different working styles in different groups
16:19:06 [DKA]
16:19:07 [MacTed]
and here we also see the potential trouble with name-and-shame.
16:19:07 [MacTed]
(very loud) "they did a bad thing!" "well, no, here's what actually happened." (quietly) "oh." (but how many people heard the correction and acknowledgement?)
16:19:07 [MacTed]
false rumors turn into "accepted truth" with disconcerting frequency -- even with visible public record of *actual* events.
16:19:10 [hhalpin]
we could also talk about membership mode.
16:19:15 [hhalpin]
membership model.
16:20:05 [danbri]
16:20:53 [oshani]
... social verification: based on what you see on the profile
16:21:09 [rreck]

danbri the hyper-conntected alpha-geek :)
16:22:03 [oshani]

16:22:47 [rreck]
why was that feature removed?
16:22:57 [hhalpin]

davidrecordon: will it be easy for people to move stuff from their domains to SNs?
16:26:29 [oshani]
