Post details: Re-search

Dec 19, 2006 : Re-search

Google indexes about 10 billion webpages. Maybe. It's hard to find a number. But it doesn't matter, because whether they index 10 billion or 2 million pages, I can't comprehend that number. I can read the number, but I don't really understand what it means.

But I'm starting to. I've been researching distributed trust networks on and off for a few years. Lately I've been doing more research in the area and finding tons of stuff that I hadn't seen before. Just by following links around and searching with slightly different phrases is revealing more and more stuff. My reading backlog is growing far too quickly :)

The most exciting things I've found are a mailing list for applied computational trust, and the T3 group which has lots of papers and event information available. I've been compiling most of my findings that are relevant to Konfidi (my distributed trust network project) at the Konfidi Research page.

Another way to try to comprehend it: if you looked at one page per second nonstop, it would take you 317 years to view 10 billion pages.

Hi! I found your site in del.icio.us/popular/trust. Very interesting!
I've added myself and some other researchers on the Konfidi wiki, I hope this is not a problem but of course, feel free to delete me! ;-)

You might also be interested in the trust metrics wiki I opened some time ago
http://moloko.itc.it/trustmetricswiki/moin.cgi/TrustMetricsEvaluationProject
At the end I was not able to keep it updated and to give it a reasonable shape but there is some interested information buried in it. Feel free to dig it and to move something (if you find it interesting) on your wiki.
