How to Move towards Trustworthy ground with Human Attributes
Human Attributes—all the aspects of a life—in online transaction environments—should progress towards the creation of Standards for the attributes-lifecycle. Such Standards should include how to respect, care and creatively treat those attributes. I think this is the right direction.
I think there should be a base Standard of assurance that will allow for the greatest range of transactions by the greatest number of participants. More on this later. Such a base standard of assurance should be agreeable by all stakeholders including individuals. This will require individuals to better understand monetization of human attributes and the crucial complex of the meaning of human attributes.
To move towards and achieve Standards for the attribute lifecycle a central challenge and dilemma must be undertaken to transparently articulate the relationship between Personally Identifiable Information (PII), attributes over a lifecycle and attributes that create PII through aggregation, provenance or other time related processes. We must acknowledge that PII and attributes are, more or less, on a continuum. The truth needs to be told that privacy requirements are not meaningful without taking on this challenge. I have some suggestions for standards in this area that I would like to forward at the proper time.
Here lie many perils and much promise.
In Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) affordable means across the economic spectrum from micro-enterprises, entrepreneurs and individuals to large enterprises. Affordable ICT standards should include royalty free, GNU or General Public License and/or other forms of licensing innovations. Some of these license innovations are often called open source.
Affordability has many facets. An affordability criteria will require its own Evaluation Methodology to order and guide the development and understanding of its dimensions particularly in commercial activity.
Facets to be included will include but not be limited to:ncluded in
