Post details: Google shows interest in social trust networks

Dec 02, 2006 : Google shows interest in social trust networks

The Google Code blog announces the Net Trust project from Indiana University. L. Jean Camp, who wrote the blog post and is leading the work on Net Trust, presented at the Models of Trust for the Web workshop. I was at that workshop, also, presenting the Konfidi trust system.

It's not entirely clear how Google is involved with the Net Trust project, but it is great to see places like Google showing an interest in social trust networks.

After trying the Net Trust demo, and reading Camp's paper on it, it seems like a good start. There's room for improvement in the system architecture, and the UI. It's only a demo, and Camp is a strong advocate of GOOD user interfaces to help users deal with trust appropriately, so I'm sure it will improve. (Konfidi has lots of room for improvement too...) It'll be interesting to see how Google helps their project.
