Hi folks,

I’m afraid that IIW has got in the way of me writing up the notes from last weeks call on ‘why has Intentcasting not happened so far’; so I suggest we postpone tomorrow’s call and re-convene on Friday 8th; i’ll catch up with the notes this weekend.

Meantime, I thought it would be good to share this newly released white paper from the MyData Community on the concept of ‘MyData Operators’.

This paper has taken about 8 months to produce with many contributions from people we know, all synthesised into something that I think makes sense. It basically says ‘MyData Operators’ (in Project VRM these are akin to 4th parties); have either a fiduciary or neutral relationship with the individual; i.e. are specifically not working solely for the organisation. It could point to the creation of a new industry category in that the 48n early ‘proto-operators’ have committed to next steps as being ’the march to interoperability’.

Personally I see this work as complementary to the work on Intentcasting in that it solidifies the ‘fiduciary relationship between a data service provider and an individual’; that’s likely a key component in delivering Intentcasting at scale.

The white paper is at https://mydata.org/operators/ <https://mydata.org/operators/>

The slides used in an IIW session today are at https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1kHgyJYhszhPAsluX1CO9Uoxwg_LfFPHU_DhRM28b8Fg/edit#slide=id.p <https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1kHgyJYhszhPAsluX1CO9Uoxwg_LfFPHU_DhRM28b8Fg/edit#slide=id.p> 

Feedback on the above was good in the session, and seems to be good overall so far. We can perhaps discuss this when we re-convene on 8th May.
