In today’s world with its diverse
     outputs and metrics any
   assessment that cannot be
independently and automaticall...
For usability,
                                                 transparency,
                                            ...
So what should it look like?

A token, not an
authentication mechanism
For researchers,
 by researchers
The property of the
individual, not controlled
 by a commercial group
...or their institution
Any centralised authority
 must represent all the
 stakeholders not just
 entrenched interests.
Future proof, portable,
and native to the open
      data web.
...whose data do you trust?




http://is.gd/thVr
We
trust
people...


                     ...not
objects
A semantic social web
of objects (and data,
 and process and...)
(Some
of)
the

                       people
I
trust...




...in
different
ways

and
for
different

things
No single metric will work for
 every person or purpose...
...but with robust identity
tokens we can build metrics
  for the purpose at hand
We can build a reward
structure that supports a
 more diverse and open
  research community.
But more importantly
We can build and manage the
trust networks that will let us
navigate an open web of data.
